The Town of Egremont accepted the grant award for a project entitled "Bringing Climate Action Home to Egremont," The grant will provide funds to conduct public water supply engineering studies on Karner Brook, review and amend Town policies and Bylaws to reflect new climate-resilient priorities embodied in the 2022 Egremont Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Plan and conduct public workshops to inform and encourage the adoption of climate-friendly practices at home.
MVP Action Grant projects are focused on proactive strategies to address local climate change impacts. They may include actions to invest in and protect vulnerable populations, improve public health, utilize nature-based solutions to mitigate the impacts of extreme heat or flooding or make climate resilience-focused regulatory updates.
