Grants to New York government agencies, nonprofit organizations, for-profit entities, and academic institutions to develop environmental plans in eligible locations. Funding is intended to restore aquatic habitat connectivity of select species, reduce localized flood risks, and improve conditions on Hudson River Estuary tributaries. Eligible projects are located within the Hudson River Estuary watershed, from the Federal Dam at Troy to the Verazzano Narrows. Projects must involve at least two municipalities.
The RFP is for proposals to create and secure adoption of municipal management plans that:
A successful project will engage at least two municipalities. The project will also develop at least three conceptual (30%) construction designs for priority sites for each municipality. The designs must focus on priority sites for flood mitigation and/or habitat. At least two must be focused on high-quality stream habitat for fish passage, per municipality. Ultimately, NEIWPCC anticipates these projects will lead to on-the-ground infrastructure projects that replace culverts and bridges with better structures that accomplish aquatic passage and reduced flood risk goals.
Neighboring municipalities are encouraged to work together to plan on a watershed scale, especially if they share a tributary to the Hudson in common. Although that is not required, extra points will be awarded in the scoring. Selection of municipalities sites for plans and sites for design will also be evaluated in the scoring on the degree to which they offer the potential for both ecological and flood resiliency benefits.
Awarded funds may be used for expenses specifically related to the proposed project, including wages and consultant fees. Expendable and non-expendable equipment directly related to the proposed project may qualify for funding but requires pre-approval (prior to proposal submission) by NEIWPCC and must be justified in the proposal.

It is anticipated that one project will be supported to develop plans for two or more municipalities, which include three or more conceptual designs for each municipality (at least six conceptual designs total).
