The Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF) is a joint program of the New York State Office of the Attorney General and Department of Environmental Conservation. The GCEF program is a $19.5 million grant program created by the State of New York with monies obtained through a settlement with ExxonMobil over its Greenpoint oil spill.

GCEF Goals

The GCEF’s goal is to fund projects that will address the Greenpoint Community’s environmental priorities through a process that is open, transparent, and ensures ongoing engagement and partnership with the community.

Grant Awards

GCEF has awarded $16.8 million in grants to 46 projects and leveraged another $37.6 million in matching contributions, bringing GCEF’s investment in improving the Greenpoint’s environment to over $54 million.
