Fund For Lake Michigan

Budgeting Resilience: Green Infrastructure Financing Incentives in Wisconsin Lakeshore Communities

  • Grant Recipient: American Rivers
  • Amount: $50,000
  • Year: 2021
  • Watershed: Basinwide, Lake Michigan Coast
  • Focus Area: Green Infrastructure

Municipal governments throughout Wisconsin are eager for the restoration and resilience that green infrastructure can bring to their community, but limited staff, budgets, and revenue can result in delayed or even forgone opportunities. American Rivers is teaming up with Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership to deliver green infrastructure finance training and support to small and mid-sized Wisconsin coastal communities to develop green infrastructure projects and tailor financing options to get more projects implemented.
