I am pleased to announce that 21 projects will be funded by ANR’s competitive grants program, for a total of $4.46 million over five years.

The four initiatives are: Endemic and Invasive Pests and Diseases, Healthy Families and Communities, Sustainable Food Systems, and Sustainable Natural Ecosystems.
