NYSDEC Commissioner Martens Statement on $24 Million in Resiliency Grants

Awarded to New York by the U.S. Department of Interior

NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens said, "The $24 million in grant funding provides valuable federal support for the approach recommended by Governor Cuomo's NYS 2100 Commission and the New York Rising Communities Program. New York remains vulnerable to the effects of climate change, especially from more frequent severe storms. These 11 projects will help our communities become stronger and more resilient using a wide range of natural infrastructure practices."
