Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund Proposal Summaries Now Available
The official list of proposal summaries is out! There are so many awesome projects (Including the Alpha One Building which we are creating). It’s great to see our project on the list. Thank you to everyone who helped with the proposal and School Factory for being our fiscal sponsor. We’re keeping our fingers crossed to make it into the pre-approval round. We’re also looking for spaces to make it happen. So if you know of any convenient locations in the 11222 zip code let us know, we have a few in mind and are following up with some people.

The full list of proposals can be found at http://www.gcefund.org/
