Clean Water, Clean Air and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act

Environmental Bond Act Overview

On November 8, 2022, New Yorkers overwhelmingly approved a ballot proposition to make $4.2 billion available for environmental and community projects. State agencies, local governments, and partners can access funding to protect water quality, help communities adapt to climate change, improve resiliency and create green jobs.

Bond Act Funding will support new and expanded projects across the State to safeguard drinking water sources, reduce pollution, and protect communities and natural resources from climate change.
