Homeowner Grants available from the RI Green Infrastructure Coalition

Posted on Updated on

The Rhode Island Green Infrastructure Coalition is encouraging the Aquidneck Island Community to plant rain gardens, use rain barrels, create pervious surfaces, and find other ways to soak up the rain to protect drinking water and restore clean water in our local bays, neighborhood streams, and estuaries.  With the support of the van Beuren Foundation, The Green Infrastructure Coalition is offering grants to homeowners on Aquidneck Island this year to make improvements that will soak up the rain and “soften” the urban hard structures. This allows homeowners to improve their neighborhood, increase property values while make a positive impact on the environment and the water quality of the Bay.
