The Hudson River Foundation announces a request for proposals for the NYCEF Newtown Creek Fund. The Fund is part of the Newtown Creek Environmental Benefits Program, created through an agreement between New York State and New York City to upgrade the Newtown Creek Water Pollution Control Plant and provide environmental benefits to neighboring communities. Priority will be given to projects in and around Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and along Newtown Creek and the East River (both Brooklyn and Queens) that promote the environmental health and revitalization of natural resources and increase public understanding of, access to and enjoyment of the environment in ways that are compatible with the Creek’s maritime and industrial character. The typical grant size will be between $5,000 and $25,000. Find more information about the NYCEF Newtown Creek Fund and download the proposal form on the Hudson River Foundation website.
