Wayne GZA

If a community has paid for and received a final feasibility study report, what priority category is next for them?
Melissa Kaplan
54:30
good question Wayne.. Federal funding triggers different permitting!
Jim Feaga
58:53
what is the appetite for submitting two proposals for the same area when you have two different activities (shoreline protection and Beneficial reuse of marsh interior) that are being progressed at two different time scales (i.e., Shoreline protection implementation and BU design/permitting).
Rebecca French
01:00:13
@Jim Feaga - We will get your question at the end so you can explain the situation more. Looks like something you are facing.

Do you know how many Futures Fund awards one nonprofit organization can receive this year? We don't want to compete against ourselves.
Rebecca French

Are the in-kind services able to begin for LISFF on October 1? When would an applicant be notified in 2022 that their grant is awarded?
Aleksandra Moch
01:17:36
Would dredging project be considered?
Rebecca French, CT DEEP
01:19:28
I know Connecticut has many communities with flooding due to stormwater. Should anyone looking at nature-based/green infrastructure solutions for stormwater go to Long Island Sound Futures Fund?
Aleksandra Moch
01:19:28
the dredging will allow keeping the tidal connections to a large marsh area.
Ryan Graham
01:20:52
Would projects awarded CWSRF funding also be eligible for the LISFF funding? E.g., wastewater treatment plant upgrades for nitrogen reduction
Aleksandra Moch
01:22:46
It will preserve the marsh from declining
Rebecca French, CT DEEP
01:22:49
We are going to start taking raised hands shortly for your specific project idea or proposal

Is there a match for NCRF?
Brent Peterkin
01:37:02
