Maryland, EPA, Chesapeake Bay Trust Provide $3.4 Million for Green Infrastructure Program

EPA recently announced a joint $3.4 million investment by EPA, the State of Maryland, and the Chesapeake Bay Trust to enable an expansion of the Green Streets, Green Towns, Green Jobs Initiative (G3).  Administered by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, the program aims to support President Obama’s Executive Order for Protecting and Restoring the Chesapeake Bay. 

The central function of the G3 initiative is to help municipalities and nonprofits with projects to add green space and green infrastructure.  These projects would reduce stormwater runoff, increase tree cover, capture and filter rainwater, and improve watershed protection, community livability, and economic vitality.
