NEW ADDRESS: LISCIF Connecticut Press Conference

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Conference has moved indoors to 581 Waterview Ave. Bridgeport, CT 06608

Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE), the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 1 are proud to announce that seven proposals have been selected to fund projects aimed at enhancing sustainable communities, promoting healthy watersheds and improving ecosystems throughout the Long Island Sound. These organizations will receive grants ranging up to $100,000 from EPA through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and will help meet the Justice40 Initiative goal that “40% of the overall benefits of these Federal investments flow to disadvantaged communities that are marginalized, underserved, and overburdened by pollution.” Combined with Long Island Sound Community Impact Fund grants awarded to New York-based organizations, the first round of grants will devote up to $1,500,000 in funding to improve the Long Island Sound. This event will feature speakers from RAE, LISS and EPA located at Groundwork Bridgeport, a grant awardee aimed at enhancing sustainability and resilience along the lower Yellow Mill River.

Speakers will include Mark Tedesco, EPA Long Island Sound Office, David Cash, EPA New England Regional Administrator, Christina Smith, Groundwork Bridgeport CEO and Executive Director, Daniel Hayden, President and CEO of Restore America’s Estuaries, and Shahela Begum, Long Island Sound Community Impact Fund Program Director.
