      I apologize for the duplication for those that may have seen the below email
      as part of the Mystic River listserve, but this may be a way to fund some
      public education initiatives involving work for Mystic Crossing.

      The New England Grassroots Environment Fund (NEGEF) has launched a new
      environmental grants program for the Boston area. The Boston Grants
      Initiative is designed to help increase the number of citizens involved
      in concrete actions that improve the quality of the environment and
      public health in greater Boston. The Initiative’s priority objectives
      are “solving environmental problems and fostering stewardship,
      increasing community involvement and building networks among Boston
      citizens.” Grant awards range from $2,500 to $10,000. Applicants must be
      working at a grassroots level on environmental health, environmental*
      *justice and greenspace initiatives in *Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea or
      Somerville*, and must demonstrate a significant element of volunteer
      involvement in their programs. Grant applications must be postmarked by
      March 15, 2004.
      (There is one restriction, related to current funding sources, so MyRWA
      is not eligible in its own right to apply, but this is a great
      opportunity for member organizations in these communities. Go Mystic
      projects!!!!)

      NEGEF also offers a small grants program designed to foster local
      grassroots environmental initiatives in Connecticut, Maine,
      Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. It provides
      small grants of up to $2,500 to fuel local activism that results in
      broader community involvement in projects that address a wide range of
      environmental issues and opportunities. Local groups may be tackling an
      environmental health problem related to poor air quality or water
      pollution, or advocates may be urging citizen participation in wildlife
      habitat protection. Whatever the issue, the Fund wants to move these
      efforts forward with its support. The next deadline for grant
      applications is postmarked by May 1, 2004.

      For more information contact NEGEF at P. O. Box 1057, Montpelier, VT
      05601, email info@... or visit the website at
      www.grassrootsfund.org

      or feel free to contact me with questions you might have, but I
      encourage you to contact the staff directly as they are very helpful!
