DEP Announces Community-Based Green Infrastructure Grants

The NYC Dept of Environmental Protection announced they will be awarding up to $3 million in grants for green infrastructure projects within combined sewer overflow drainage areas in New York City as part of the NYC Green Infrastructure Plan. The grants can be used for green roofs, enhanced tree pits, and other measures to reduce and manage stormwater on private property and public sidewalks.  For more information visit the DEP website.  If you or someone you know is interested in partnering with the Newtown Creek Alliance to develop a green infrastructure project in the Newtown Creek watershed please contact us at
