Androscoggin County Valley of Governments will use its award to help four towns –
Town of Jay
, Carthage , Greenwood and
Town of Chesterville
– develop climate planning priorities . “AVCOG serves some of the state’s most vulnerable populations , and with 72% of the Maine’s communities lacking planning staff , we applaud the Maine Won’t Wait climate action plan for identifying our work as critical in ensuring our communities are resilient , ” said Amy Landry , Executive Director of the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments .
A second round of Community Resilience Partnership grants will be awarded later this year . Please contact us if you would like assistance joining the partnership . For more information and to see a full list of grant awards and projects visit:
