EPA-CRC Pittsburgh Resources

In February 2012, EPA announced the availability of $950,000 in technical assistance to partner communities to help overcome some of the most common barriers to green infrastructure. EPA received letters of interest from over 150 communities across the country, and selected 17 of these communities to receive assistance with code review, green infrastructure design, and cost-benefit assessments.

Pittsburgh was one of the 17 communities chosen. The factsheets and reports below were prepared as part of the 2012 Green Infrastructure Community Partners Program.
