Established in 2005, this program encouraged development of community planning initiatives in the West-of-Hudson Watershed. Over the next several years, municipal comprehensive plans, zoning updates, open space studies, economic revitalization plans and generic environmental  impact statements were completed with LTAP grants. The program’s rules were revised in 2014 to provide planning grants to communities to help identify new locations for homes and businesses being purchased through the voluntary NYC Flood Buyout Program. Grants up to $20,000 are available to municipalities that have adopted Local Flood Analyses.
