More than 230 environmental initiatives in New Brunswick will be funded through the Environmental Trust Fund to the tune of nearly $7.5 million in 2019-20.

Environment and Local Government Minister Jeff Carr says, "For almost 30 years, the fund has supported thousands of projects that protect our rivers, educate our youth and preserve our environment."

An additional $900,000 has been earmarked for provincewide projects.

Priority areas for the fund are protecting the environment, increasing environmental awareness, managing waste, addressing climate change, and building sustainable communities.
