“These grants are important to protecting our environment and encouraging energy conservation,” Yaw said. “They will help to improve the quality of life for area residents.”
Bradford County will receive $39, 250 to implement a mosquito monitoring and a virus surveillance program to determine if the West Nile Virus is present in the county.
Sullivan County will receive $26,230 and Union County $51,913 for mosquito monitoring.
