The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: What does it mean for Eastern North Carolina?
April 27, 2009

Join local Cypress Group members and the Craven County Democrats to learn more about federal stimulus funding for weatherization, energy efficiency, and small town competitive grants. Energy Efficiency funding opportunities are arriving in North Caroline in two ways: direct block grants to towns with a population over 35,000 and smaller funding processes through the State Energy Office to towns with a population under 35,000. We will discuss what this means for New Bern and other towns in the east.
