This unit works together with municipalities, sewerage and utility authorities, and other local government units for the purpose of providing low cost loans for
open space land acquisition and conservation for passive purposes (hiking, cross country skiing, horseback riding, etc.). Each parcel or portion of a parcel to
be funded through the Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program must demonstrate a water quality benefit. This program can be used to fully fund the purchase
or as a supplemental funding source to the Green Acres.
