The Baker-Polito Administration this week awarded Groveland $25,000 to support the development of a community-based climate change program, Finance and Personnel Director Denise Dembkowski said.

Town Planner Rebecca Oldham intends to use the funds to hold public listening sessions and workshops on how to handle possible flooding due to rising sea levels, she said.

“This grant will enable us to work as a community to take essential proactive steps to ensure that we are as prepared as possible to face the inevitable impacts of climate change,” Oldham said. “I’m grateful for the support of the Baker-Polito administration on this critical issue, and am looking forward to building a stronger understanding of the challenges that lie ahead for us.”

Awarded to coincide with Earth Day, Groveland’s grant is one of 27 handed out across the Commonwealth through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Program.
