More than one million dollars will be awarded this year by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) for projects that address environmental problems and related public health issues at the community level. Please join me for an information session with DEC officials, where you will learn how Community organizations can access these grants. Organizations do not need 501(c)(3) status to apply. Don’t miss this great opportunity!
