    The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has announced grants totaling $4.1 million in support of twenty-five projects aimed at accelerating restoration and conservation of wildlife habitats in the Delaware River watershed.

    Senator Carper, Senator Coons and Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester quoted in the story. 

    "The Delaware River Basin doesn't just provide drinking water for fifteen million Americans; it's an economic engine for Delaware's tourism, hunting, fishing, and agricultural industries," said Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE). "We know that federal partnerships with local stakeholders improve ecosystem vitality and boost environmental quality for the Delawareans and wildlife that depend on a healthy Delaware River Basin. That's why I'm thrilled to see the first grants under this law be awarded, and I look forward to seeing the outcomes of these twenty-five important projects."
