Grants starting at $10,500 to New York nonprofit organizations, government agencies, municipalities, tribes, special districts, school districts, and community colleges to conserve natural resources in the Hudson River Watershed. Applicants should be advised that required registrations and prequalifications may take at least five days to complete prior to the application deadline. Funding is intended to support projects that restore and conserve habitats, increase flood resiliency, and benefit water quality of free-flowing waters along the Hudson River Estuary.
This Hudson River Estuary Program RFA for Tributary Restoration and Resiliency seeks to achieve one or more of the following objectives of the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda
In addition, this RFA addresses state priorities for protection of Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) and for mitigation of damages to natural resources. The priority SGCN under this RFA are river herring and American eel. However, other SGCN species include those that may benefit from tributary restoration projects such as brook trout, wood turtle, northern red salamander, longtail salamander, alewife floater, eastern pearlshell and yellow lampmussel.
Primary priority will be given to dam removal projects that are in close proximity to the Hudson, because of their importance for improving habitat for American eel and river herring.
Examples of projects which improve aquatic connectivity are:
