Green Infrastructure Demonstration Showcase
A key feature of New Jersey Future’s Mainstreaming Green Infrastructure program is the advancement of demonstration projects that illustrate the powerful benefits of green stormwater infrastructure in public- and private-sector development or redevelopment. New Jersey Future will select two high-profile green infrastructure demonstration projects – one public-sector and one private-sector – located in one of the William Penn Foundation’s Delaware River Initiative Areas: the Highlands of northwest New Jersey or the Kirkwood Cohansey Aquifer area of southern New Jersey.
Public and private-sector entities including developers, municipalities and nonprofits with projects located within these areas are encouraged to apply!
Check out the guidelines and selection criteria, and submit your project. See links below for website, submission guidelines and online application information:
