Green Infrastructure Champions are key players in implementing green infrastructure as a stormwater management approach town by town.  Green Infrastructure Champions will be able to:

  • Enhance their knowledge through green infrastructure workshops, seminars, and personal research
  • Engage community leaders to adopt green infrastructure as a stormwater management solution by updating ordinances and municipal master plans
  • Encourage local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and schools to incorporate green infrastructure in their existing landscaping
  • Secure funding for green infrastructure
  • Publicize implementation of green infrastructure through social media channels

Here is what we can offer:

  • Training on green infrastructure planning and implementation
  • Technical support to develop a design for a green infrastructure demonstration project
  • Networking opportunities with other Green Infrastructure Champions for mutual support
  • Assistance with grant writing and submission

    **A minimum of five (5) workshops is required for certification.**
