News from the Hudson River Estuary Program

Request for Proposals – Planning for River Access Resiliency in the  Hudson River Watershed $50,000 is now available to develop a regional  design and planning guide to help site managers and communities assess risk and plan for flooding and sea-level rise at riverfront parks and  fishing, swimming, and boating access sites along the Hudson River estuary and its tidal tributaries. The resulting project will incorporate
best environmental practices and universal design principles and will include the use of natural and nature-based approaches where suitable.
