Please join us on Monday, April 8th at noon for a NFWF Project Spotlight, “Hopewell and Lancaster Green Infrastructure and Urban Restoration.”
Join NFWF and specialists from Hopewell and Lancaster who will share lessons learned from grant project aimed at implementing and engaging the community in green infrastructure and urban restoration projects, having worked through local municipality and contractor challenges. The discussion will bring to light similarities and differences in project challenges and lessons learned between two towns in different ends of the watershed.
The projects being spotlighted are:
- “Hopewell Restoration Project” with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, supported by US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program’s Small Watershed Grants Program
- “57595, “Reducing Local Impacts on the Chesapeake Bay through Riverside Park’s Stream Restoration (VA)” with the City of Hopewell, supported by US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program’s Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Program, CSX, and Altria
- “Private Financing to Accelerate Urban Stormwater Retrofits (PA)” with the City of Lancaster, supported by US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program’s Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Program

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Project Spotlight series is an effort to share lessons learned, challenges and opportunities in implementation through discussions with grantees who have recently completed a grant project. Grantees with expertise in a common topic join together to reflect on their experiences and answer audience questions.
The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) has a long‐standing partnership, through a cooperative agreement, with the National Fish and Wildlife (NFWF) to provide direct financial support to accomplish both:
‐ The Small Watershed Grant (SWG) program that promotes community‐based efforts to develop conservation strategies to protect and restore the diverse natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay.
‐ The Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction (INSR) grant program that support efforts with the Chesapeake Bay watershed to accelerate nutrient and sediment reductions with innovative, sustainable, and cost‐effective approaches.
