Jan. 16, 2012

About $372,000 will help support community projects

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New England office is awarding 13 grants under its 2011 Healthy Communities Grant Program, totaling approximately $372,000, to support community projects addressing environmental and public health issues.

The projects funded through this program will result in reduced environmental risk, protection and improvement of human health, and improvements to the quality of life for communities across New England.

The program combines resources from nine EPA programs to strategically address environmental and public health issues burdening New England communities. The goal of the program is to competitively select projects that will achieve measurable environmental and public health results in communities.

Eligible projects must meet several criteria, including location and identification of how the proposed project will achieve measurable environmental and/or public health results.

The grants were awarded to Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
