Breakfast Webinar: NYS EFC Green Innovation Grant Program & City of Poughkeepsie Projects
Hudson River Watershed Alliance’s 2022-2023 breakfast lecture series focuses on grant funding and technical assistance programs available to implement watershed projects. Each month features presentations on a specific opportunity, along with a local implementation case study.

Brian Gyory from NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation will present on the Green Innovation Grant Program. The Green Innovation Grant Program supports projects across New York State that utilize unique EPA-designated green stormwater infrastructure design and create cutting-edge green technologies. Competitive grants are awarded annually to projects that improve water quality and mitigate the effects of climate change through the implementation of one or more of the following green practices: Green Stormwater Infrastructure, Energy Efficiency, Water Efficiency and Environmental Innovation.

The City of Poughkeepsie will share details about their GIGP-funded stormwater projects. These include retrofitting two downtown municipal parking lots and installing rain gardens, bioretention, and trees in Malcolm X Park to provide green space in the city's Northside neighborhood along the Fall Kill Creek.
