Save the Date: Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund Meeting

by GWAPP on

Join New York state officials and program managers for an informational, community meeting to introduce the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF), a new $19.5 million grant program accepting proposals for environmental benefit projects in the Greenpoint zip code 11222 starting in fall 2013. The meeting will introduce the grant program and program team, and provide an opportunity for community members to pose questions and offer comments.

The official request for proposals (RFPs) will be rolled out in mid-October. It’s likely both small and large (under/above $25,000) grants will be awarded over the next several months.

GCEF Community Meeting:
Wednesday, September 25 at 6:30PM
WARSAW, 261 Driggs Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222
