Cornell Cooperative Extension is hosting a forum on:
Fostering Climate Resiliency in your Community
“How to become a leader using funding and support from NYS Climate Smart Communities”
Date: Saturday, June 24, 2017
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: St. Thomas Aquinas College – RSAC main room
(125 Route 340, Sparkill, New York, 10976)
Communities will learn about new climate resilience grants and technical assistance available through the NYS Climate Smart Communities (CSC) program. The forum will feature municipal leaders who will provide insights into how their community is leveraging state resources to adapt to climate change and extreme weather. Presentations will also be given by representatives from the NYSDEC Office of Climate Change and the Hudson River Estuary Program.
Climate Smart Communities 2017 grant application deadlines are anticipated to be due in late July – a few weeks after this forum.
This forum is part of the Hudson Estuary Watershed Resiliency Project, a program of Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension in partnership with the NYS Water Resource Institute and the NYS DEC Hudson River Estuary Program, with support from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund.
