Baker-Polito Administration Announces Grants for 15 Restoration Projects

The Baker-Polito Administration yesterday awarded $506,344 in grants from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET) to 15 projects across the state that will restore aquatic habitat, rivers and watersheds, monitor water quality, etc. 

“Last year’s drought showed how precious and vulnerable our water resources are, and how important it is we act proactively to protect these resources and the wildlife that rely on them,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “These innovative local projects will improve water quality across the state and make our natural resources more resilient to the effects of climate change.”

“Our administration remains committed to working collaboratively with our community-based partners to protect and restore rivers, wetlands, and the valuable natural resources throughout the Commonwealth,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito.

Since it was founded in 1988 as part of the Boston Harbor cleanup, the Massachusetts Environmental Trust has awarded more than $20 million in grants to organizations statewide that protect and enhance the state’s water resources, from supporting water projects in communities to protecting coastal habitats.

Funding for this grant program comes from the sale of the state’s three environmentally-themed specialty license plates: the Right Whale Tail, the Leaping Brook Trout and the Blackstone Valley Mill.
