Funds will help investigate financing approaches for storm water and green infrastructure

EPA UNC Environmental Financing Center Funds Green Infrastructure Storm Water

The Environmental Finance Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (EFC) received funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to investigate innovative financing approaches for storm water and green infrastructure. As part of this work, the EFC is reviewing the myriad of publications that have been produced in this area in the last few years to create a catalog that analyzes these publications along various criteria. The project is also aimed at capturing the lessons learned on areas such as budget considerations and incentive mechanisms for green infrastructure projects.

This project includes education, training, technical assistance and outreach around innovative financing approaches for green infrastructure. 

While reference will be made to many examples of green infrastructure finance mechanisms from around the country, the EFC will be focusing assistance efforts on the following communities under this project:

  • Clayton, Ga.
  • Durham, N.C.
  • Ramsey Washington Metro Watershed District, Minn.
  • Rincon, Ga.
