Community Grants

NYSP2I provides an important source of funding for community-focused pollution prevention initiatives. Each fall, proposals are solicited from community organizations, municipal departments and other public sector and not-for-profit entities for projects that raise awareness and understanding of pollution prevention practices and lead to implementation at the local level. Communities all across New York State benefit from this program. To date, NYSP2I has awarded over $1M to support 78 projects across NYS.

Eligible applicants must be NYS-based, not-for-profit community organizations or local government agencies. Examples include: academic institutions; neighborhood associations; environmental justice; municipal departments; community development corporations; health centers; local unions and labor organizations; offices or departments of a city, town or county; primary and secondary schools; libraries; local environmental agencies; boards of health; departments of public works; local emergency response offices; town commissions and planning and zoning boards.
