EPA is accepting letters of interest from communities interested in receiving direct assistance for projects that facilitate the use of green infrastructure to protect water quality.  Technical assistance will be provided through EPA contract support and will be directed to watersheds/sewersheds with significant water-quality degradation associated with urban stormwater.  The total EPA assistance available is approximately $950,000 and will be distributed among 10 to 20 projects. The value of the assistance available to each project will be approximately $50,000 to $100,000. Letters of interest must be received by April 6, 2012.  For more information, please see EPA's green infrastructure website.
