On September 2016, CSP received funding through USDA Rural Development’s Community Facilities Grant to purchase a new truck. Due to the vast locations of conservation areas and working with communities in all municipalities around Pohnpei, it is a need for CSP to upgrade its means of transportation. Over the past three years, CSP has been conducting community-based conservation projects with dysfunctional vehicles. Despite the risks, the job gets done anyways. However, at some point, remote operations become questionable due to transportation. We are very grateful for the USDA Rural Development’s Community Facilities Program. With the available funding, CSP was able to matched the grant in order to purchase a decent truck to help carry out conservation projects in the communities all throughout Pohnpei. The truck also serves the schools in transporting our mobile environmental awareness program – The Green Road Show. CSP Board of Directors along with management and staff would like to pay our big KALAHNGAN to the United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA), most especially the Rural Development (Area III) FSM Office for facilitating the process.
