Governor Kathy Hochul announced $60 million is available for the inaugural round of the Green Resiliency Grant (GRG) program. The new program will prioritize grants to flood-prone communities and help them undertake innovative green infrastructure projects such as green roofs, green streets, and permeable pavement. This initiative delivers on elements of Governor Hochul’s clean water and resiliency plan to protect New Yorkers from extreme weather.

EFC uses an online application for GRG. The signature form that is available below must be downloaded, signed by the highest elected official or the authorized representative for the applicant, and submitted via the online application.
