On January 30, 2013, the Chesapeake Bay Trust released details of the 2013 Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns Grant Program.
The initiative is designed to support urban green infrastructure projects that lead to improved water quality within the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns grant program is open to local governments and non-profit organizations in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and Virginia that are interested in pursuing urban green stormwater infrastructure and green jobs as part of a watershed plan. Funding is available for innovative green street project planning, design, and alternative financing.
The Chesapeake Bay Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns Academy will also host a webinar to discuss this Request for Proposals and to showcase successful grant projects on January 31 from 1:30-3:00 pm.
The webcast is targeted to local governments and non-profit organizations in urbanized watersheds in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Washington D.C., and Virginia and will benefit anyone interested in pursuing green streets, urban green infrastructure, or green jobs as part of an overall integrated community or watershed plan.
