Green Streets, Green Towns, Green Jobs Grant Initiative

June 16, 2015

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, in partnership with Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources, announced $727,500 in 2015 grants to be awarded to 15 organizations through the Green Streets, Green Towns, Green Jobs Grant Initiative (G3 Grant Program). The G3 program was piloted in the Chesapeake Bay area in 2011 to encourage local jurisdictions to use “green” techniques when pursuing necessary “gray” infrastructure projects.  Its purpose is to improve local, grassroots-level greening efforts by towns and communities in urbanized watersheds that reduce stormwater runoff through the creation of “green streets,” the increase in urban green spaces, and the reduction of impervious surfaces.

This initiative aims to reduce heat stress as well as energy use and cost for Massachusetts residents.

New Jersey Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes (PILOT) Program

In 1971, New Jersey implemented the Payment-in-Lieu-of-Taxes (PILOT) Program. Through this program, the state pays municipalities to protect and conserve open, undeveloped lands owned by the state and tax-exempt nonprofit organizations. This program was created to benefit environmental quality, quality of life, and economic health in New Jersey by conserving open space for natural resources and recreational purposes. While this program has been amended throughout its tenure, it is a noteworthy example of a state program that creates incentives for local governments to create open space by mitigating the impacts of lost tax revenue and land maintenance costs. In a managed retreat context, a similar program could be coupled with hazard mitigation buyouts and open space acquisitions to encourage local governments to conserve vulnerable properties impacted by sea-level rise and flooding.
