The Green Cost Share program is a local incentive program to prevent climate change and reduce air pollution in the City of Minneapolis. Through this program the city offers matching funds to participants when completing a solar, energy efficiency, or air pollution reduction project.
The program launched in 2013 to help dry cleaners eliminate the use of cancer-causing chemicals. Over the years it has evolved to include more types of projects and eligible entities. One important component of this evolution has been the increased emphasis on environmental justice. The city has higher incentives and prioritizes projects in Green Zones, Great Street Eligible Priority Areas, income qualified housing, and most recently, buildings damaged in the civil unrest of 2020.
