DEC Awards Mohawk River Grants

The state Department of Environmental Conservation awarded more than $155,000 in Mohawk River Basin Program grants for four projects in the Mohawk River Basin Watershed.

According to the DEC Acting Commissioner, Basil Seggos, these grants, funded by the state Environmental Protection Fund, will help to improve water quality, promote resiliency and create recreational opportunities in the community.

The Mohawk River is an essential environmental and economic treasure, and these grants will advance critical projects to preserve and protect the health of the River and its watershed,” said Acting Commissioner Seggos. “This is the third year DEC has offered grants to support important local projects in the Mohawk River Basin.

The Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda was developed in collaboration with numerous local, state and federal agencies and organizations that share a common interest in the conservation and revitalization of the Mohawk River, its watershed and communities.

The Action Agenda, which is implemented through the DEC’s Mohawk River Basin Program and its partners, strategically identifies opportunities to:

  • conserve, protect and restore fish, wildlife and their habitats;
  • protect and improve water quality in the Mohawk River Basin area;
  • promote flood hazard risk reduction and enhanced flood resiliency;
  • revitalize Mohawk River Basin communities through sustainable development; and
  • maintain working landscapes by supporting well-managed farms and forest lands.
