Green Infrastructure Projects

 Smart Growth Review

The State Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy Act (the Act) of 2010 requires EFC to determine that a project meets relevant smart growth criteria, to the extent practicable, in order to provide financial assistance through the CWSRF. EFC will review responses to the relevant smart growth questions in the Consolidated Funding Application to make this determination. The Act is intended to augment the state’s environmental policy by maximizing the social, economic and environmental benefits of public infrastructure development while minimizing unnecessary environmental degradation, disinvestment in urban and suburban communities and the loss of open space resulting from sprawl development.


 Public Comments

EFC will solicit and consider comments from representatives of and organizations within communities that may be affected by the proposed projects. The comment period will be noticed in the State Environmental Notice Bulletin.
