$445K in grants for Connecticut River projects

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Seven Connecticut River watershed projects are getting over $445,000 in grants from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

It’s the 12th round of grants awarded from the Upper Connecticut River Mitigation and Enhancement Fund, created as part of a 1997 settlement agreement between the parties involved in the federal process to award a new operating license for three hydroelectric dams on the river near Littleton, N.H., and Ryegate, Vt.

The grants ranged from $218,100 to the Connecticut River Watershed Council of Greenfield, Mass., to continue several habitat restoration projects, to $5,000 for the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust of Sugar Hill, N.H., to develop a program of private voluntary stream corridor conservation in the lower Ammonoosuc watershed.
