Funding Available for Green Infrastructure Projects!

February 15, 2011 at 12:49 pm Leave a comment

Good news for those who have been thinking of implementing green projects at their buildings – New York City is offering grants for private property owners, businesses and 501(c)(3) organizations to build several types of green infrastructure. Eligible projects will help to reduce or manage the stormwater runoff that leads to combined sewer overflow in the city’s waterways.

 Ten project types are eligible for funding, including green roofs and rain barrels.

Not all New York City properties will qualify – applicants must fall within a combined sewer drainage area. You can view a map of these areas here.

Applications are due April 1, 2011. Read the grant application for full details of the funding opportunity and application requirements.  The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a workshop for grant applicants on February 28, from 5:30-7:00 pm, at Pratt Manhattan, 144 W 14th St, Room 213. Email sustainability@dep.nyc.gov by 12pm on February 28th to RSVP.
