Clean Water Strong Communities

Water, Water, Everywhere
Cities are investing billions in sorely needed water system upgrades over the next 20 years, and many of those dollars will flow through low-income communities and communities of color. Two new reports by Green for All and PUSH Buffalo and Partnership for the Public Good outline how to use community benefit strategies – including local hire policies, social enterprises, green infrastructure investments like parks and rain gardens, and more – to ensure these investments grow strong neighborhoods, cities, and regions. For examples of cities and communities pioneering these strategies, read our previous stories about PUSH Buffalo, Verde, and the City of Portland, Oregon.
