About this grant

PennFuture is a premier voice for resource conservation and environmental protection in Pennsylvania. With partial Mott support, the organization plans to open an office in Erie, the fourth largest city in Pennsylvania located on the state’s 63-mile Lake Erie shoreline. Staff working out of the grantee’s new office in Erie will: organize and equip residents, community groups, academics, and others with a greater understanding of water protection tools available to them; develop a Common Agenda for Clean Water that sets forth short- and long-term solutions to water protection and restoration in the watershed; and deploy legal and regulatory expertise to protect water quality in the Lake Erie basin.
