New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner, Basil Seggos, has announced that $350,000 in competitive grant funding is available to help communities in the Hudson River Estuary watershed increase resiliency to flooding, protect water quality and enhance natural resources.

The grants are provided through New York’s Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) and are administered by DEC’s Hudson River Estuary program.

“Working with local communities, environmental groups, and civic organizations, New York has significantly improved the environmental health of the Hudson River Estuary,” Commissioner Seggos said.

“Governor Cuomo has made significant investments to improve community resiliency and protect our valuable natural resources across New York State. These grants provide another boost to the Hudson River and watershed communities.”

To date, the Hudson River Estuary Program has awarded 495 grants totaling more than $19 million. The Local Stewardship Planning Request for Applications grants support planning for local stewardship of the river environment to help achieve the goals of the 2015-2020 Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda.

The deadline for applications is July 11, 2018.
