“Local Champions” Offers $8,000 Grants for Climate Smart Communities

Application Deadline: December 14th

Lifeboats HV, a new funding initiative sponsored by The New World Foundation, has launched a pilot project aimed at helping Hudson Valley communities become more climate-smart. The project, known as “Local Champions” will award $8,000 grants to six communities to support the hiring of “climate-smart coordinators.” These individuals will participate in a six-month program of training and technical assistance as they shepherd their communities through the NY State Climate Smart Communities bronze certification process.
