Green Project Reserve

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ State Revolving Fund programs encourage funding recipients to use green components, which help achieve environmentally sustainable solutions for infrastructure needs.  The Green Project Reserve (GPR) became a provision of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs in 2009 as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  Certain federal capitalization grants, since 2009, have included language relating to the establishment of the GPR.  The amounts shown in the tables below reflect the targets for GPR projects, or components of projects, as specified in the federal capitalization grants.

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency developed guidance that describes the requirements for GPR.  These EPA guidance documents are modified annually.  Please visit their website below for the current available information.  GPR projects are divided into four categories:  sustainable green infrastructure, water efficiency, energy efficiency, or other environmentally innovative solutions.  EPA has a list of project elements which are considered categorically green.  For project elements not specifically identified as categorically green, a business case needs to be developed to demonstrate that the project element meets the GPR criteria.

Projects meeting GPR criteria are subject to all department and State Revolving Fund program requirements.
