New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is offering $6 million in grant funding for green infrastructure projects that manage stormwater runoff from private property. Private property owners in the combined sewer areas of all five boroughs of New York City are eligible to apply. The fall due date for applications is October 21, 2014.
What is Green Infrastructure?
Green infrastructure systems mimic natural processes to manage and treat stormwater runoff. Examples include rain gardens, green roofs, porous pavement, bioswales, and treatment wetlands. These systems offer multiple benefits including:
- Improving water quality and public health
- Passive operations resulting in low maintenance
- Improved aesthetics
- Creation of habitat
- Strengthening coastal resiliency
