The Environmental Protection Agency plans to hand out a nearly $1 million grant to New Jersey Clean Cities Coalition to reduce air pollution in New Jersey and New York. 

The money will be used to replace the engines of 21 ferry and excursion boats that operate between New Jersey and New York with clean energy technology.  The current engines being used generate nitrogen oxide, cabon monoxide, and fine particles that pose serious health risks such as asthma. 

New Jersey’s U.S. Senator Robert Menendez said, “With one of the highest asthma rates in the nation and thousands of premature deaths every year, local familes are the ones feeling the impact of toxic air pollution.  This is unaccpetable.”
