Public meetings scheduled on funding for Delaware environmental projects

    The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has two public meetings scheduled this week with its Community Involvement Advisory Council to provide more information on the state’s Community Environmental Project Fund.

    Tonight and Thursday, prospective applicants can learn more about how to apply for funding for their environmental projects. Keep in mind that not any old Joe Schmo can apply.
    Eligible parties include:

    Delaware civic and community organizations
    nonprofits
    educational institutions
    counties
    municipal governments
    state agencies
    quasi-state agencies representing communities where environmental violations have occurred

    CEPF dollars go toward projects that reduce pollution, improve environmental conditions or enhance natural resources. Applications are due March 16.
