SBN Member Drive:
Win a Dinner for Four at R2L

This is a call to action. We have ambitious goals for our network, including doubling our membership by 2020, and we are challenging our members to help us build, diversify, and strengthen our network by inviting your colleagues, friends, and peers to become part of our community. Will you support us as we continue to build a movement in Philadelphia? Who is missing from our network? Who will you invite into the SBN community?

Keep in mind as you are inviting businesses to become part of SBN that the SBN member who recruits the most new members between November 16, 2016 and January 18, 2017 will win a 5-course dinner for 4 people with wine pairings at R2L. To be eligible for this prize, the SBN member must recruit at least three (3) new members who join as a business. Get started by accessing our Recruitment Toolkit. If you have any questions, please contact Wendy Metzgar, Member Services Manager. As always, many thanks to our members for the contributions they make to SBN – and our local economy – every day.

GSI Monitoring Grant Pilot Program

The GSI (Green Stormwater Infrastructure) Monitoring Grant Pilot Program was developed by the GSI Partners to support the private sector in collecting and sharing performance data on private GSI projects, such as rain gardens, stormwater tree trenches, porous pavement, and green roofs.

We are accepting applications for the GSI Monitoring Grant Pilot Program now through December 9, 2016. Three (3) grants will be awarded in the pilot year, with a maximum award of $15,000 each.
