Financial Incentive Green Raleigh Review

You can now install green stormwater features in the City right-of-way. Placing features in this area frees up land for other aspects of your project.

Financial Incentive

We'll pay you for the difference in cost between:

  • Traditional right-of-way stormwater infrastructure (i.e. pipes and culverts); and, 
  • Green stormwater features (i.e. bioretention areas)


  • The city owns and maintains green stormwater features after construction.
  • Payment is on a case-by-case basis. Contact us by email or call 919-996-3940 to see if you're eligible.
