Breakfast Webinar: DEC Climate Smart Communities Grants & Cayuga Creek Floodplain Restoration
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.

This month, Myra Fedyniak from NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's Office of Climate Change will present on Climate Smart Communities Grants. The Climate Smart Communities Grant Program is a competitive 50/50 matching grant program for municipalities to implement projects focused on climate change adaptation and greenhouse gas mitigation. Project types also include certain planning and assessment projects that are part of a strategy to achieve Climate Smart Communities Certification.

Emily Root from Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper will share their work with the Town of Niagara to restore and reconnect the floodplain of the Cayuga Creek, with funding in part from the Climate Smart Communities Grant program. This project restores habitat, mitigates downstream flooding, and improves community access.
