The DC Environmental Network (DCEN) Sends Priority Budget Recommendations to DC Council Environment Committee.

This has been a busy budget season for DCEN and the sustainability community:

– The DC Environmental Network (DCEN)DC Fiscal Policy Institute (DCFPI), DC Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE), and DC Department of Public Works (DPW), held joint budget briefings to prepare for DC Council hearings.

– The DC Environmental Network participated in both the DC Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE), and, DC Department of Public Works (DPW), Budget Oversight Hearings!

At these events, DCEN expressed support for funding important poverty, wildlife, recycling, and climate programs that the two agencies play an important role in.
