SUNY Cortland will host an educational listening session regarding the $4.2 billion Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act tomorrow, June 8th from 1 to 3pm in the Corey Union Function Room.
Tomorrow’s event will feature experts from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Environmental Facilities Corporation, Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, NYS Energy Research and Development Authority, and others.
“The Environmental Bond Act is a tremendous opportunity for New York to continue its role as a leader on fighting climate change and improving our communities,” SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “I think it’s fitting that this meeting is happening on our campus because SUNY Cortland is committed to being one of the greenest campuses in the nation.”
The event is free and will allow members of the community and those who have a potential funding application in the region the opportunity to learn more about the Bond Act and the eligibility requirements being developed.
The Bond Act was approved by residents of New York by voters last fall via a referendum.
