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. $42M 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.
