Green Infrastructure Partnership Program

Funding Available for Green Solutions to Water Pollution

Managing water where it falls is an effective way to reduce pollution and water problems for neighbors downhill. Annually, we invite public, not-for-profit, and private sector organizations within eligible municipalities to apply for funding from Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) to create new rain gardens, bioswales, green roofs and a variety of techniques that help capture and harness rain and melting snow. 

Applications for the Green Infrastructure Partnership Program (GIPP) is closed for 2021. Stay tuned for the 2022 application announcement.


The program offers incentive funding on a per-gallon captured, reimbursement basis for a host of green infrastructure strategies designed to capture and clean water where it falls. Applications are competitively scored based on an established set of criteria focused on the applicant’s ability and commitment to implement, maintain, and promote the project. MMSD is seeking partners that will foster the acceptance and implementation of green infrastructure (GI) as a viable means of managing water where it falls.
