$75K in grants for environmental projects in Salisbury, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and Interfaith Partners getting funding

SALISBURY, Md.- The City of Salisbury is partnering up with the Chesapeake Bay Trust funding $75,000 dollars in grants for environmental projects.

We are told two local organizations are expected to receive funding for this project.

Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake will get a grant to provide outreach and to train people in forming Green Teams.

They’ll also produce an action plan for faith-based organizations.

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church will get funding to remove a surface in their parking lot, which will allow for runoff into storm drains.

Acting Mayor Julia Glanz said the city is committed to the environment- so they are happy to help with these projects.

“It’s important for us to lead by example and to put our money where our mouth is and encourage others in the community to step up and they all had to write detailed grants and put together plans and so they’re doing the work,” Glanz said.

Glanz said funding is coming from the City’s Storm Water utility fee fund.

We are told this is the second year that a project was awarded to the Interfaith Partners.
