Breaking News: New and Improved Newsletter!

As DNREC's Lean initiative grows and evolves, so must our Lean-focused newsletter. Lean Tuesdays will now be called: Think Lean: Every Day, Everyone

Think Lean, will no longer be kept to just Tuesdays. We'll keep you informed whenever there is a new Lean project update or an exciting continuous improvement tool. Thank you to everyone who provided suggestions for our new name! It's through your help that we're able to build a better DNREC.

Project Highlight: DNREC's Environmental Finance - Makings Things Better

DNREC's Environmental Finance has debuted their new and improved web page on the alpha site. 

Along with the new site, Environmental Finance is working on improving their national outreach efforts. As a recent success, administrators within Environmental Finance conferenced with The Nature Conservatory of Illinois (TNC) to discuss innovative ways nonprofits can utilize Clean Water Stater Revolving Funds (SRFs) and Land Conservation Loan Sponsorship Program  and Water Quality Improvement Loan Sponsorship Program funds. 

The team at Environmental Finance looks forwards to continuing their relationship with TNC and making new connections with other peer organizations across the country.
