The Long Island Sound Futures Fund (LISFF) makes grants totaling close to $1 million every year to protect and restore the Long Island Sound and its watershed. The LISFF supports projects that involve communities in improving the Long Island Sound through implementing innovative water quality improvements such as rain gardens and permeable pavers, restoring parks and open spaces, and educating and engaging the public within the LIS Watershed.
The next grants cycle will be announced in March 2015. To help organizations with their applications, NFWF and LISS are sponsoring free workshops in Huntington on March 17, a webinar on March 24, and in New Haven and Norwalk on March 30. Check the events section of LISS’s calendar for more information and registration.
