This RAISE grant will help to finally bring this project to life and make a lasting impact in the Bronx for decades. A number of initiatives increase access to electric vehicles and improve clean traffic for all New Yorkers, including EV Make Ready, Evolve NY, the Drive Clean Rebate, the New York Truck Coupon Incentive Program (NYTVIP), and federal funding under the NEVI Program. Driscoll said: “Increasing the availability of fast charging in the Bronx through the NYPA's Evolve NY program is a solution that will have far-reaching effects on the environment and will help bring New York State closer to achieving its ambitious clean energy goals. Youth Impact members receive training in restorative justice practices, attend educational and professional development trainings, and lead projects that contribute to their community.
To reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality, New York also adopted zero-emission vehicle regulations, including requiring that all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state have zero emissions by 2035. Culture is also an integral part of the social fabric of New York City, bringing together communities from all neighborhoods across the five boroughs. Funding from the Department of Transportation to New York City to help reimagine the highway that crosses the Bronx and brings this project closer to the finish line, said U. Overseen by the New York State Department of Transportation, the Hunts Point project will provide direct access to the Hunts Point terminal market from both the Bruckner Highway and the new Sheridan Boulevard. In addition to the non-profit cultural sector mentioned in detail on page 39, if we analyze in general terms all the creative and cultural sectors, New York City is home to more than 400,000 induced and indirect jobs.
The addition of a third lane in each direction of the Bruckner Highway and the replacement of the Bryant Avenue pedestrian bridge, which began in earlier phases of the project, will also be completed. And according to the New York Works report, culture employs more than 400,000 workers across New York City in total. The study revealed that, in low-income neighborhoods of New York City, high levels of cultural activity are correlated with reduced rates of obesity and serious crime, while increasing the number of students who score the best in English language arts and mathematics tests. New York City's cultural sector unites communities and makes them more resilient, promotes public health and safety, improves educational outcomes, creates a platform for civic participation, employs hundreds of thousands of workers, attracts tens of millions of tourists, and generates billions of dollars in economic activity every year.
