Illinois Green Infrastructure Grant Program

Illinois Green Infrastructure Grant Program for Stormwater Management (IGIG)

Between FY 2011 and FY 2014, forty IGIG grants, totaling nearly $20 million, were made available to local units of government and other organizations to demonstrate green infrastructure best management practices to control stormwater runoff for water quality protection in Illinois. Projects were located within a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) or Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) area.

Acres of permeable pavement parking lots and alleys and riparian zones and rain gardens are techniques now in place to help restore, mimic, or enhance natural hydrology to protect and improve local water quality.

Additional details about the IGIG Program and its accomplishments can be found at the IGIG Progress Report and the IGIG Summary/Location Map (FY 11 -13).
