EPA Announces New Green Infrastructure Website and Technical Assistance
Building on our 2011 Strategic Agenda, EPA's Green Infrastructure
Program is pleased to unveil our new website and to announce the
availability of technical assistance to 10-20 partner communities.
Our new website repackages and expands upon our previous website to
showcase EPA's research on green infrastructure and to serve as a
gateway to the wealth of resources developed by governmental agencies,
academia, non-profits, and the private sector. Stakeholders will be
able to consult our website for up-to-date information on green
infrastructure publications, tools, and opportunities.
The first opportunity we are announcing through our website is the
availability of direct assistance from EPA to facilitate the use of
green infrastructure to protect water quality. Technical assistance
will be provided through EPA contract support, and will be directed to
watersheds/sewersheds with significant water quality degradation
associated with urban stormwater. The total EPA assistance available is
approximately $950,000, and will be distributed among 10-20 projects.
The value of the assistance available to each project will be
approximately $50,000 - $100,000. Letters of interest must be received
by April 6, 2012.
