Grants Announced for Long Island Sound

The Connecticut congressional delegation yesterday applauded fourteen grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Long Island Sound Futures Fund supporting preservation and restoration of the Long Island Sound in communities across the state.

NFWF’s Long Island Sound Futures Fund supports projects in local communities that aim to protect and restore the Long Island Sound.

It unites federal and state agencies, foundations and corporations to achieve high-priority conservation objectives. Funded activities demonstrate a real, on-the-ground commitment to securing a healthy future for the Long Island Sound.

The Sound is a critical economic, recreational and environmental resource,” Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro said. “These waters are a regional and national treasure. Community organizations and local governments play a crucial role in making sure they will be a clean and healthy ecosystem for future generations to enjoy. I congratulate all of the grant recipients and look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor continue for years to come.
