Grant Funding Available for Mohawk River Projects

Approximately $200,000 in grant funding is available to municipalities and not-for-profit organizations to implement the Mohawk River Basin Action Agenda, Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos announced yesterday.

The funding is provided by the state’s Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) and administered under DEC’s Mohawk River Watershed Grants Program.

“Continued investments that protect waterways like the Mohawk River are essential to strengthen their economic force in the region,” said Commissioner Seggos.

“These grants will help local partners fund projects designed to preserve and protect the Mohawk River watershed and further advance economic and environmental importance of investing in protecting waterways. This is the fourth year DEC has offered grants to support important local projects in the Mohawk River Basin.”

Grant awards ranging from $15,000 to $50,000 are available, and all projects must have defined measurable outcomes or deliverables that can be completed and invoiced within two years of contract approval, DEC said.

All grant applications must be submitted no later than 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
