    The Chesapeake Bay Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns (G3) Grant Program is now open

    G3

    The Chesapeake Bay Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns (G3) Grant Program funded by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region III (EPA), Chesapeake Bay Trust (Trust), and the City of Baltimore Office of Sustainability with support from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, was created to support design projects, financing strategies, and/or implementation of green street projects. The goal of the Chesapeake Bay G3 Grant Program is to help communities develop and implement plans that reduce stormwater runoff, increase the number and amount of green spaces in urban areas, improve the health of local streams and the Chesapeake Bay, and enhance quality of life and community livability.

    This collaborative effort supports implementation of the President’s Chesapeake Bay Protection and Restoration Executive Order and serves as a key component of EPA’s Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Partnership. The G3 Partnership provides support for local, grassroots-level greening efforts to reduce stormwater runoff from towns and communities in urbanized watersheds. By focusing on “green streets” communities can develop and realize a green vision to design-build and operate and maintain green infrastructure stormwater practices. Green Streets anchor communities and serve as a catalyst for the integration of green practices that support green schools, greening of urban vacant lots, increasing urban tree canopy, and reducing impervious surfaces to improve natural infrastructure.

    Up to $30,000 for design projects, $75,000 for implementation projects, and $20,000 for white papers may be requested for this grant program. If selected, Charrette applicants will receive technical assistance rather than direct funding.

    Deadline: March 17th, 2017 at 5pm. For more information, including a list of 2016 awardees, please visit the grant webpage: Chesapeake Bay Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns (G3) Grant Program. For questions contact Grant Manager, Jeffrey Popp, 410-974-2941, ext. 103.

    Forestry and Forested Land Protection Grant Program offers up to $1,000,000 for protecting forested land in Anne Arundel County

    fallforest

    Anne Arundel County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust announce a partnership to provide funds for forestry projects and land protection in Anne Arundel County. The goal of this program is to implement cost-effective reforestation and greening projects and increase the number of acres of protected forested land in the County. By increasing tree cover and expanding green areas, erosion can be reduced; water and soil quality can be improved; airborne pollutants such as particulates, nitrogen oxide, and carbon monoxide can be filtered; and summer temperatures and resulting ozone pollution and energy use can be reduced. Protecting forested land ensures valuable ecological services such as habitat, water quality, and flood control for future generations.

    Afforestation and reforestation projects that provide ecological benefits by establishing, enhancing and/or preserving riparian buffers; creating, enhancing and/or preserve larger contiguous tracts of forest; and/or creating, enhancing, and/or preserving wildlife habitat, including habitat for forest interior dwelling species are preferred. Reviewers will look favorably upon projects that have demonstration value by serving as an example for landowners seeking to learn how to establish, enhance, and/or protect forested land.

    Three types of projects will be supported in this grant program:
    1) Reforestation or afforestation of lands already under long-term protection;
    2) Permanent protection of lands already forested through conservation easements; or
    3) Reforestation or afforestation and permanent protection of lands that are currently not forested and not protected.

    Funds are available for up to $300,000 for planting and forestry projects, and up to $1,000,000 for land protection through conservation easements.

    Deadline: January 12, 2017 at 5pm. For more information, please visit the grant webpage here: Forestry and Forested Land Protection Grant Program. For questions contact Grant Manager, Jeffrey Popp, 410-974-2941, ext. 103.

Hey... where's the rest?

As we transfer data from the old platform to the new one, we're taking baby steps. If it seems like something is missing, we'll likely be added it over the next few weeks. If you need something in particular, feel free to ask.
