Umbrella

A partnership created to bring multiple green infrastructure options to neighborhoods in a comprehensive and accessible way.

We are working to prioritize green infrastructure projects in the Hoffman Triangle and increase capacity of local community members to identify opportunities for green infrastructure in their neighborhoods. Connecting a green jobs training program, faith-based leaders and local community members, we will use innovative tools to address stormwater and flooding issues, while at the same time scaling up highly effective green infrastructure retrofit techniques.

Our partners are happy to bring our green infrastructure model to neighbors in the Hoffman Triangle over the next two years.
