(Applications due Sept. 12, 2022) The Long Island Sound Study has announced a new Environmental Justice program focused on the Long Island Sound watershed. The Long Island Sound Community Impact Fund (LISCIF) will direct funds and technical assistance to communities experiencing or affected by adverse and disproportionate environmental and human health risks or harms. EPA is seeking proposals from organizations to partner on launching the LISCIF and will provide up to $5 million for this program with Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funds. Applications are being accepted through Sept. 12, 2022. Learn more at grants.gov.
The Environmental Justice Work Group (EJWG) brings together people in the watershed to help LISS actively move forward in its Environmental Justice implementation work and better serve the needs of minority and underrepresented communities who are disproportionately affected by environmental hazards.
LISS encourages all interested organizations, groups, and individuals to join the EJWG. If you would like to join, please email Jimena at [email protected] to be added to our group mailing list.
