Improving Health and Ecosystem of Long Island Sound

Top federal and state environmental officials from New York yesterday announced 31 grants totaling $2.04 million to local government and community groups to improve the health and ecosystem of Long Island Sound, EPA said in their latest release. 

Fifteen projects, totaling $1.05 million, directly benefit New York, according to EPA.

EPA Regional Administrator, Pete Lopez, joined U.S. Congressman Lee Zeldin, Carrie Meek Gallagher from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and Amanda Bassow from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) at the Childs Mansion and Flax Pond Marine Laboratory to highlight how the grants will benefit people who live and work around Long Island.

The projects highlighted yesterday are funded through the Long Island Sound Futures Fund (LISFF) and show how relatively small projects, with participation from local groups and communities, can make a very big difference in improving water quality and restoring habitat throughout the Long Island Sound watershed.

This grant program combines funds from EPA and NFWF.
