Heinz Endowments Continues to Pour Grant Money Into Fight Against Fracking

From the Associated Press:
The Heinz Endowments are continuing to strongly support research and advocacy relating to environmental and health impacts of natural gas hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in spite of significant turnover in its senior management.

The Pittsburgh-based Endowments told the Associated Press that it gave out more than $3.3 million in 2013 for grants specifically related to gas drilling. That estimate doesn’t include grants to other groups who spend only part of their time on drilling issues.

The more than 20 grantees included many regional groups, but also universities such as Yale, Harvard and Cornell. The projects ranged from studies of potential air and water pollution to films, community organizing and support for a sport fishing group that monitors drilling impacts.
