Grants Available for Mohawk River Projects

Municipalities and non-profits can now apply for $150,000 in grants to support implementation of the Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda to improve water quality, flood resiliency and habitat, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens announced. The grants are funded by the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF).

Grants for the Mohawk River Basin encourage and promote the development of economic and environmental projects consistent with Governor Cuomo’s Mighty Waters work group,” said Commissioner Martens. “DEC is committed to continue its focus on conserving, preserving and restoring the environmental quality of the Mohawk River and its watershed.”

The grants will range from $5,000 – $10,000 for projects that implement the 2012-2016 Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda. The deadline to submit applications is November 21, 2014.

DEC and its partners developed the Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda to promote coordinated management of the environmental and cultural resources of the Mohawk River and its watershed. There are five key areas by which the Action Agenda defines its goals: fish & wildlife, water quality, flood hazard risk reduction, community revitalization, and working landscapes.
