"The Front Yard Initiative FYI"
March 9, 5:30 PM
Join the Urban Conservancy and the Lower 9th Ward Homeownership Association to learn more about green infrastructure and how it can help reduce flooding on your property with FYI.
The Front Yard Initiative (FYI) is a program of the Urban Conservancy (UC), a nonprofit that has been on the forefront of equitable land use decisions since its founding in 2001. At the Front Yard Initiative we incentivize homeowners to remove excessive paving and replace it with green infrastructure to help reduce localized flooding. Green infrastructure is a type of water management that mimics natural water cycles. It can be implemented on very large scales for city projects all the way down to individual interventions on residential properties.
