Alternative Stormwater Infrastructure Loan Program

The Alternative Stormwater Infrastructure Loan Program offers below-market rate loans for the design and construction of green infrastructure as part of economic development projects. Up to $5,000,000 in loan funds per project are available to governmental entities through the program. Development partners are encouraged to partner with the governmental entity for their projects. The funds can pay for design, demolition, construction, materials and administrative costs associated with the green infrastructure project. This program targets a specific challenge of redevelopment projects by reducing the cost to businesses and communities that need to minimize both the financial and environmental impact of their stormwater runoff.

Program Policies, as well as a Pre-Application and Application for the program are located on the left hand side of the page.

The City of Newark recently completed their Downtown Renovation Project with the use of the Alternative Stormwater Infrastructure Loan. To learn more about the Newark case study click here or watch the video below.
