Urban Initiatives for Pollution Prevention

Urban Initiatives

The Hartford Neighborhood Environmental Project (HNEP) was sponsored by the Department's Office of Pollution Prevention to assist to work cooperatively to enhance the economic opportunities, environment and quality of life in Hartford neighborhoods.  The project funded the environmental education efforts of four community organizations operating in seven of Hartford's poorest neighborhoods from 1996-2001.  The HNEP published environmental inventories of two neighborhoods and fact sheets related to resources in the community.  A Hartford contact list for getting help on community environmental problems from asbestos to land-use planning is available.  This contact list is distributed to block watches at environmental problem-solving sessions.
