About the G3 Grant Program in Maryland
The G3 Grant Program, funded by EPA Region 3 and the Chesapeake Bay Trust with support from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources , provides support for urban green stormwater infrastructure projects. The goal of the G3 Grant Program is to help communities implement sustainability plans that reduce stormwater runoff, increase the number and amount of green spaces in urban areas, improve local water quality, and enhance a community's quality of life.
Who Can Apply?
All communities in Maryland, and throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed portions of Delaware, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia are eligible to apply for the G3 Grant Program. This program is open to local governments such as municipalities, non-profit organizations, neighborhood/community associations, and other non-profit entities. The scope of the grants include green stormwater infrastructure projects, such as green streets, within the context of a current or ultimate strategy in which “green” components are added to retrofit projects as a matter of standard practice. The program is intended to support and foster market incentives for green infrastructure by building local and county-level capacity to implement innovative, cost-effective projects.
