$13M Funding Announced for Delaware River Watershed

The U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have announced $13 million in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is headed to New York State to partner with the America Farmland Trust to implement conservation projects in the Delaware River Basin watershed.

The funding was allocated through the USDA’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) and will allow New York State to leverage federal funds to improve the Delaware River Basin’s water quality, support wildlife habitat and enhance the environment.

Schumer and Gillibrand said these conservation projects will define and address water quality and quantity concerns as well as provide access to conservation best practices for the more than 600 farmers and 600 forest landowners on 35,000 acres in this important region.

The Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), promotes coordination between Natural Resources and Conservation (NRSC) and its partners to provide federal assistance to farmers and landowners. Regions must apply in order to be eligible partners in the program and access federal funding. The program was authorized under the most recent farm bill.
