GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Program

Title:
Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns (G3) Program

Abstract:
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.
