GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Program
Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Program
In October 2010, EPA launched the Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Initiative to provide support for small to medium-sized communities in urbanized watersheds working to reduce stormwater runoff through the use of green infrastructure. The G3 Initiative supports the use of green streets to bring a community's "Green Vision" to life and provides the tools and resources needed to develop a green vision, design-build, and operate and maintain green infrastructure stormwater management practices. Green streets provide multiple community benefits by improving the water quality of local watersheds and enhancing a community's livability and economic vitality.
Although originally focused on the Chesapeake Bay watershed,the G3 approach can be broadly applied to any community to manage stormwater runoff.
