Keep Protecting New York's Environment
We love New York, and the Environmental Protection Fund and the state's environmental agencies safeguard what we love most about New York: our clean air and water, protected parklands and working farms, and good quality jobs.
The Environmental Protection Fund Works!
A greener New York State means a more vibrant economy in the Empire State, too. The Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) supports a wide variety of programs that generate revenue and create jobs across New York State. A recent analysis by The Trust for Public Land found for every $1 the Fund invests, $7 is returned to New York State. Through various programs, the Environmental Protection Fund supports more than 350,000 jobs across a spectrum of industries, including outdoor tourism, agriculture, and protecting drinking water for millions of New Yorkers. All told, EPF-supported industries generate approximately $40 billion every year.
Keep Protecting New York
The We Love New York campaign is calling on state leaders to show how much they Love New York by supporting and enhancing the Environmental Protection Fund and state environmental agencies, which time and time again have proven benefits, for both our communities and our economy.
20 Years of Success!
2013 marked a very special year for one of New York's most valuable programs. For over 20 years the EPF has conserved our farms, forests, and clean water; supported our parks, zoos and recycling programs; and revitalized our waterfronts.
