GI Grant Program Overview

In 2015, PWSA began a grant program designed to support local, grassroots efforts that employ green infrastructure (GI) projects to manage stormwater. PWSA aims to increase GI in the City of Pittsburgh by encouraging everyone to get involved. Projects supported by this program will improve water quality, boost the local market for GI design and installation services, increase public awareness of GI benefits, and stimulate economic development.

The grant program contains 3 categories: 

Matching Grant Program
