Green Infrastructure Grants Program
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (Sewer District) supports the strategic implementation and long-term maintenance of green infrastructure that protects, preserves, enhances, and restores natural hydrologic function, including funding green infrastructure projects within the combined sewer area through the Green Infrastructure Grants (GIG) Program. NEORSD's GIG Program is open to member communities, governmental entities, non-profit organizations 501(c)(3), or business working in partnership with their community in the combined sewer area interested in implementing water resource projects that remove stormwater from the combined sewer system and in ensuring the long-term maintenance of the green infrastructure practices. Projects may be awarded up to $250,000.
