CHPS Awarded $250,000 Grant to Fund Tree Planting
WE are celebrating our $250,000 grant award to fund tree planting at our schools! Marking Climate Week, September 17-24, Commissioner of Environmental Protection Shawn M. LaTourette, Sustainable Jersey and The College of New Jersey announced the award of $4.55 million in grants to fund the planting of trees at 34 public schools, colleges, and universities in the state. Funded by Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) auction proceeds, the Trees for Schools grant program will help mitigate climate change through the planting of more than 3,000 trees across the state, many in overburdened communities and those experiencing elevated temperatures due to insufficient numbers of trees and an excess of paved areas. Awarded grants range from $12,000 to $250,000.
WE will now work with the Trees for Schools project team to develop our tree project design and will participate in tree-planting workshops. The tree plantings are scheduled for spring 2024.
