NPC Awarded Grant to Improve Local Water Quality

We are thrilled to share that NPC has been awarded a $450,000 Growing Greener Plus grant from the state! This funding will fuel NPC’s ongoing efforts, as part of the Northcentral Stream Partnership, to enhance our region’s local water quality.

Growing Greener is the largest single investment of state funds in Pennsylvania’s history to address critical environmental concerns. “The Growing Greener Plus grant program empowers communities to pursue environmental progress and innovation,” said Interim Acting Secretary Jessica Shirley. “This support fuels vital Pennsylvania initiatives that protect our land and restore local watersheds. As a result, our Commonwealth can look forward to a greener future.”

With this grant funding, NPC will continue work to stabilize eroded streambanks, restore floodplains impacted by agriculture, and implement essential best management practices. These include exclusionary fencing, riparian buffers, and reinforced stream crossings, all aimed at safeguarding our precious water resources and supporting our local ecosystems.
