Since 2015, Green Infrastructure Leadership Exchange (Exchange), a network of more than 60 municipal leaders, has been working to achieve more equitable green stormwater infrastructure delivery in low-income communities experiencing repeated flooding. This 2-year project support grant will allow Exchange to continue to improve its basic operations, organizational strength, and financial resilience supports operations and programming. Funding will further allow Exchange to provide virtual and in-person opportunities for its members and members of Kresge’s Climate Resilient and Equitable Water Systems (CREWS) Initiative to build connections and engage in deeper learning.
