According to the story, Greenworks will fix buildings with dilapidated roofs, which “were already marked for replacement. For each roof, Greenworks will tap $9,000 from the grant, offering free labor and asking the businesses to match that amount with what would essentially be the cost of a new paved roof.” The non-profit will also “use the opportunity to draft a blueprint to green the entire 13-block corridor,” so more green-roofing could happen in the future with a larger grant sum.
