USA: Buffalo Receives EPA Great Lakes Grant

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the award of a $500,000 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant to the City of Buffalo to fund green infrastructure projects to improve water quality in Lake Erie.

Cameron Davis, Senior Advisor to the EPA Administrator for the Great Lakes, was joined by Congressmember Brian Higgins and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown at the offices of the Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper to announce the projects.

“Lake Erie’s health and Buffalo’s resurgence are tied together. Neither can exist without the other,” said Davis. “This project will result in cleaner water, reduced flooding, and a more resilient shoreline in the face of climate change.”

Buffalo is one of 16 cities to receive funding in the initial round of EPA’s new GLRI Shoreline Cities grant program, which is designed to improve water quality in the Great Lakes basin.
