New grants will help fund projects in the Hudson River Estuary to reduce localized flooding, create sustainable shorelines, improve water quality, and restore aquatic habitat in tributary streams, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
The four grants, which total $395,273, are provided through the NYS Natural Resource Damages Fund (NRD), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s State Wildlife Grant Program, and the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF). The grants will be administered by DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program.
