“The Sharpsburg Neighborhood Organization, Etna Economic Development Corp. and New Sun Rising will share equally in the multi-million dollar grant from the Henry L. Hillman Foundation to benefit the community-led, sustainable initiative, the Triboro Ecodistrict.
“The initiative benefits the boroughs of Sharpsburg, Etna and Millvale. Development will be over the course of two years, and the first round of projects installing solar panels in each community is set to start in June. . .
“The end goal of the initiative is to strengthen the resiliency of food, water, energy, air quality, mobility and equity systems.
“With the funds, the Triboro Ecodistrict will create an environmental justice policy tool kit that will develop policy in all three boroughs as well as document the project to share with other communities.”
