State funds available to improve storm resiliency of Hudson River access sites

ALBANY – The state has made $50,000 available to help communities and site managers assess flooding risk and plan for flooding and sea-level rise at shorefront parklands and river access sites along the Hudson River estuary.

The funding will help communities with fishing, boating and swimming sites along the river and its tidal tributaries improve resiliency through design and planning guidelines that mitigate climate risks and allow for quick recovery from storm events.

The deadline for proposals is 12 p.m. on February 15 with information on the application process on the state DEC website.

Funding for the grant comes from the state’s Environmental Protection Fund.
