The grants process consists of the following steps:

  1. Submit LEED or Brownfield application
  2. Development Department reviews and approves
  3. City Council authorizes & encumbers funds
  4. Enter into grant agreement
  5. Complete the project
  6. Request reimbursement and receive grant

On February 28, 2011, Columbus City Council authorized the first four grants under this program, thus encumbering 24% of the one million dollar fund.  These grant awards went to two LEED projects - the Wesley Glen Wellness Center and the Capital Park Family Health Center - and for Brownfield assessment work at two sites - 421-435 West State Street and 154-164 South Yale Avenue.
