Page 12 The Dundalk Eagle July 16, 2020 Over $1.4 million grant announced to help support green infrastruc­ture The Chesapeake Bay Trust, manager of the funds from the “Protect the Chesapeake” license plate program, in partnershi­p with the U.S. Environmen­tal Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announce $1,429,161 in funding for the Chesapeake Bay Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns Grant Program (G3). These awards help communitie­s develop and implement plans that reduce stormwater runoff, increase the amount of green spaces in urban areas, improve the health of local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay, create “green jobs,” and enhance livability in cities and communitie­s. This announceme­nt highlights awards made to 25 innovative green infrastruc­ture projects that span Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvan­ia, Virginia, and West Virginia with almost half of the recipients being new applicants to the program. The work of the G3 program is intended to facilitate and encourage community integratio­n of green techniques into traditiona­l “gray” infrastruc­ture projects. As communitie­s have to, for example, repave roads, reconfigur­e intersecti­ons, or implement other gray infrastruc­ture projects, the G3 program encourages them to add green elements at little additional up-front cost for cost effective savings on stormwater treatment, flooding abatement, and other community benefits. “The EPA congratula­tes all of our grantees for putting forth Green Infrastruc­ture projects that will support clean water and strong neighborho­ods,” said EPA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administra­tor Cosmo Servidio. “We are proud to assist communitie­s in their efforts to reduce pollution to local waters and the Chesapeake Bay while improving their economy and quality of life.” The awardees announced today will not only implement projects that include enhanced community safety and quality of life, the removal of impervious surfaces, expansion of urban tree canopies, inclusion of bioretenti­on and other stormwater treatment practices, vacant lot retrofitti­ng, and other green infrastruc­ture practices throughout the region’s watershed, but also share their plans and projects to ensure that others in the greater Chesapeake Bay watershed community can benefit from their lead. “The communitie­s and organizati­ons receiving awards today serve as models for the entire Chesapeake watershed and beyond,” Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio said. “By supporting these green infrastruc­ture initiative­s, we will continue to foster innovation and acknowledg­e the multiple benefits of meeting our water quality goals.” Eligibilit­y for applicatio­n extends to communitie­s within Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvan­ia, Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia thanks to the collaborat­ion of funding partners within Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region. “This year, perhaps more than ever, communitie­s are seeing the importance of providing green spaces and green features that encourage their residents to walk, recreate, and just ‘be’ outdoors,” stated Dr. Jana Davis, executive director of the Chesapeake Bay Trust. “During these times of the pandemic, so many more residents are realizing the aesthetic, health-related, and even economic power of being outdoors, and grants like these will enhance their ability to do so.” CHURCH DIRECTORY ASSEMBLY OF GOD UNITED METHODIST Sept 1- May 31 8:30am Sun Sch. 9:45am Worship June 1-August 31 Pastor M.
