Lower Ninth Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development
New Orleans, La.
The center works to support environmentally conscious and sustainable recovery of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, which borders coastal waterways and wetlands. This two-year grant funds work to launch a community coalition, develop working relationships with community-based organizations, and engage residents in support of non-structural flood risk-reduction measures and river diversion for wetland restoration.
