DEP will host four workshops in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx to explain the eligibility requirements of the program and guide users through the online application. A fourth technical workshop will be held at DEP to provide extra support in completing the stormwater calculations template. At this workshop, potential applicants have an opportunity to review project concepts with DEP engineers.
