Green Tier advisors

The Department of Natural Resources receives input and advice about Green Tier from a group of people with a variety of expertise, interests and perspectives. As the Green Tier statute articulates, the advisors advise the department about these program elements:

  • the implementation and operation of the program, including setting goals and priorities for the program;
  • evaluating the incidental costs of applying for the program (there are no fees for applying) and of entering into a participation contract of a charter, and the administrative costs of participating in the program;
  • assessing whether incentives provided under a participation contract are proportional to the environmental benefits committed to under a contract;
  • procedures for evaluating the program and the results of the program; and
  • changes that should be made in the program.

The Green Tier advisors generally hold four meetings a year. The group consists of up to 16 people who serve staggered, three-year terms.
