ARRA Funding opportunity to Transform your Community

ARRA funding to make our communities Green may be perceived by some as " too Good to be true" and therefore not getting serious attention by Community Leaders. They are facing day to date challenges and getting so many mails- e-mails coming in at rapid rate. So when it says not cost to you, zero risk etc. the first reaction is to ignore it. Fortunately it is true that some program offer 100% financing for doing the green things to save energy, make green power etc.

How to make a believer is the challenge for those who want to convey the message to the Mayors and Supervisors, County executives in various States. New York State and upstate area is what we are focusing and it was my pleasure to talk at one of the communities- North Tonwanda, NY. Fortunately the group listened and took action to plan forming a green task force. Every step counts and we hope to make rapid progress.

The money would not last forever as applications come in on First come serve basis.

The bottom line for Community Leaders is - ARRA is real and do not miss the opportunity to apply for these funds . The community will become more efficient in the use of energy and save money for more worthy causes in future.

I agree with the commentator that it all starts with the individual. Once we have made the commitment and made changes then only we can look beyond.
As Gandhi said - "be the change".
So what is a community? It is made up of many individuals and it needs local active people, with green vision, to inform the leaders. Community Leaders can then initiate the sustainable green planning work with such Volunteers.
