Sen. Somers Applauds Climate Resilience $$$ for Groton

Sen. Heather Somers (R-Groton) today applauded the awarding of a $200,000 state grant to the Town of Groton to develop a townwide climate resilience plan that looks at all hazards. The plan will accompany a town-funded climate mitigation plan.

“This support from the state is much appreciated,” Sen. Somers said. “It will help Groton to further local efforts to protect our natural resources from erosion, climate change and rising sea levels.  Erosion and climate change know no borders.  We all care deeply about preserving our beautiful Connecticut coastline. This is an issue which impacts all of us, and we must continue working together to address it.”

The grant was awarded through the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s Climate Resilience Fund to catalyze Connecticut’s resilience project pipeline and ensure communities are competitive for federal resources.
