The Village of Sodus Point in New York has been awarded a $45,000 grant from the New York Sea Grant and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for a new community pier project. This grant is part of the New York Great Lakes Basin Small Grants Program, which supports projects enhancing environmental and socio-economic sustainability in the Great Lakes watershed.
This funding will allow the Village of Sodus Point to evaluate three potential sites for the new pier, considering environmental impact, socio-economic benefits, and the feasibility of green infrastructure. The project aligns with New York State’s commitment to advancing resilience, water quality protection, and sustainable land use in the Great Lakes region.
The grant is part of a larger initiative by the New York State Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) to support diverse environmental needs in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River region. The program, administered by NYSG in partnership with DEC, aims to empower communities in conserving and enhancing their local environments, in line with New York’s Great Lakes Action Agenda.
