Legacy Communities Participants and reports

The Green Tier Legacy Communities (GTLC) network exists to advance sustainable practices and stretch limited local government resources. By working together, Legacy Communities are preparing for the future, building resilient communities and moving faster towards their goals.

The network offers many benefits:

  • additional grant point considerations for select state grants, grant notifications and opportunities for joint grant applications;
  • peer-to-peer learning and resource sharing;
  • an assigned liaison within the DNR;
  • access to the 'Sustainable Strategies' webinar series;
  • regional collaboration opportunities;
  • use of the Green Tier logo and statewide recognition; and
  • free technical support from subject matter experts
