35 grants totaling $1.6 million awarded to state and local government and community groups in New York and Connecticut under the Long Island Sound Futures Fund.

When leveraged by an additional $3 million contributed by the recipients themselves, a total of $4.6 million will support conservation projects in both states. The projects in both states will open up 50 river miles for fish passage, and restore 390 acres of critical fish and wildlife habitat.
