Abstract Securing adequate, sustainable sources of funding for managing wet weather presents a significant challenge for towns and cities across the United States, and financial constraints frequently hinder the implementation of effective programs and practices at the local level. This situation is often especially true for green infrastructure approaches, not necessarily because they are more expensive than traditional management approaches (in fact often they are less expensive), but because they do not necessarily fit existing funding frameworks. In many cases, green infrastructure is simply another item on the community to-do list that can not (and will not) be addressed without developing alternative funding mechanisms. Fortunately, a growing number of communities have overcome financial barriers with funding strategies that are sustainable and effective. Many communities pay for green infrastructure projects by drawing from general funds, while others set up new fees, taxes and other directed charges to help pay for public infrastructure repairs and improvements.

Contents Notes This chapter on funding options describes strategies and provides case study examples of how local governments are generating reliable funding for green infrastructure. In order to effectively manage and minimize stormwater runoff with green infrastructure, municipalities must establish sustainable funding sources to move beyond the pilot phase and create a comprehensive green infrastructure program. This document identifies and discusses the two most common funding options communities are using for green stormwater infrastructure - stormwater fees and loan programs. A third source of funding - grant programs - is also available in limited amounts to support green infrastructure projects.
