More on the Partnership Program

Since the inception of the Partnership Program in 1992, CRJC has disbursed over $1,201,000 to support 399 local projects throughout the Connecticut River watershed. The Partnership has been made possible through support by the VT and NH congressional delegations. This federal seed money has been matched 10:1 by local generosity, even though no match is officially required.
