Long Island Sound Futures Fund (LISFF)

Throwe Environmental serves as the Field Liaison for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) Long Island Sound Futures Fund (LISFF). Since 2005, the LISFF has awarded approx. $32M in grant funding in projects to improve water quality, restore the natural environment, and engage and inform communities about the importance of a healthy Long Island Sound. 

As Field Liaisons, Throwe Environmental supports potential grantees in the Upper Basin states of the Sound’s watershed (MA, NH, VT and non-coastal CT) as they develop project proposals. Throwe promotes awareness of the funding opportunity and provides technical support as applicants develop nitrogen prevention/reduction planning, design, or implementation project proposals in the Upper Basin.
