Green infrastructure (GI) is a popular tool for adapting to and mitigating climate change and extreme event effects, and requires financial tools for development and maintenance. GI financing tools are evaluated for a single US dataset to relate GI finance to GI project characteristics. Results indicated that GI projects and cost shares were mostly located in a few states, that grants were the most common tool (two-thirds of GI projects reporting financial tools received grant funding), and most reported using only one to three financing tools. Projects used multiple GI technologies, averaging three to a maximum of nine, and the most commonly used ones were bioswales, retention, rain gardens, and porous pavements. These findings are useful for decision-makers evaluating funding support for GI. Expanding GI databases can increase the representativeness and applicability of findings for decision-making.
