From the office of Attorney General Schneiderman: “The State of New York is collaborating with the residents of Greenpoint, Brooklyn in investing $19,500,000, obtained by the State of New York in a settlement with ExxonMobil, in ‘Environmental Benefit Projects’ (EBPs) in the community. These EBPs will be designed to provide significant environmental improvements in Greenpoint and address environmental areas of concern for the community, such as water quality, groundwater, open space, reduction of toxic pollution, and air quality.” Come to an open house on Monday Feb 11 to get an update on the Program’s progress, meet the Program’s General Administrator, and provide input on the types of environmental projects you want to see the Program fund in your community!
