A Review of New Jersey Water Bank Financing for Green Infrastructure Projects (July 2018) is a report sponsored by NJ Future that emphasizes the importance of the state's Water Bank Financing Program particularly with respect to green infrastructure for communities with combined sewer systems.
The report describes program accomplishments with green infrastructure projects that successfully accessed the Water Bank's favorable financing terms. The report reviews best practices for potential applicants to access the Water Bank's financing offerings more successfully and examines program changes underway by the NJ DEP and the NJ I-Bank to make it easier for project sponsors to apply for financing green infrastructure projects going forward.

Small Cities with Big-City Infrastructure Problems; Three Case Studies In Stormwater Infrastructure Innovatio (April 2017) is a report developed in cooperation between NJ Future and re:focus partners, with design support from the landscape architecture firm SCAPE. In 2015 NJ Future joined with re:focus partners to create the Build it Green (BIG) Initiative, a project to help New Jersey communities design, finance, and implement integrated projects aimed at addressing CSOs alongside other urgent community priorities. This report describes the approach to addressing stormwater management issues pursued by three separate New Jersey communities: Perth Amboy, Gloucester City and Jersey City. The initiative was funded with the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's New Jersey Health Initiatives.
