$200K grant awarded to Riverkeepers of Waterkeepers CarolinaPosted on April 27th, 2023
“Promoting nature-based solutions through community collaboration” is the name of the project, which will do exactly that: coordinate a statewide campaign focused on securing Inflation Reduction Act funding for clean-water projects and nature-based flooding solutions in BIPOC and low-income communities — often those most impacted by flooding.
“We’re grateful for the funding,” said Sound Rivers’ Executive Director Heather Deck. “This will allow Riverkeepers across the state trying to help the communities most burdened by flooding and pollution get access to federal Inflation Reduction Act money. It will be available to fund green stormwater infrastructure projects and repair of outdated sewer infrastructure across the state.”
