On May 19 at 10 a.m., the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host a public information session on the recently announced Natural Climate Solutions Grant Program.
The information session will review applicant eligibility, project types, and the application process. The $15 million grant program is open to municipalities, counties, state agencies, and school boards, as well as others.
Grant awards will range from $250,000 to $5 million for projects designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by increasing carbon storage capacity in biomass and soils, will reduce methane and nitrous oxide emissions caused by increasing salinity of coastal water or changing land use, and will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by preventing soil loss.
Those interested should register for the information session. For more information on the grant program, please see the DEP’s dedicated webpage.
