Helping Communities: Sandy-Devastated Communities Eligible for Assistance
Do you – or does someone you know – live in a community that suffered significant damage from Hurricane Sandy? Cities, towns, or boroughs in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, or Rhode Island that were devastated by the storm are eligible to apply for technical assistance from Global Green USA to help rebuild in a more sustainable and resilient way. Share the link to apply with your town, city, or borough leadership today, and urge them to submit the online application by April 30, 2013. This effort is part of Global Green USA's initiative to help cities with community greening projects using LEED for Neighborhoods (LEED-ND) criteria. Funded by the U.S. EPA, our work with the Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities Program gives us the chance to offer our expert guidance on catalytic projects and collaborate with local leaders committed to making positive changes for their neighbors – and the planet. Our reports are up for the eight cities we helped in 2012 and we have already started work on six additional cities we're committed to serving in 2013 – plus two additional communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Please share our online application today.
