Grants Available for Watershed Restoration Projects

division waterFRANKFORT, Ky. (12/26/13) – Federal matching grants are available for projects that help clean up polluted streams, rivers, lakes, and groundwater and for projects that pro-tect water resources. The grants are for watershed restoration projects and for water-shed plan development as well as for other projects that reduce and prevent runoff pol-lution.
 
Runoff pollution, also known as nonpoint source pollution (NPS), is the No. 1 contributor to water pollution in Kentucky, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the impairments of rivers, streams and lakes in the state. Runoff pollution occurs when water runs across the land and carries sediment, nutrients, pesticides, metals, and animal and human waste into streams, rivers, and groundwater.
 
The Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) administers the federal NPS grants, which are funded through Section 319(h) of the Clean Water Act. The funds are provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and can be used to pay for up to 60 percent of the total cost for each project; a 40 percent nonfederal match is required.
 
The DOW gives priority to projects involving watershed plan development and imple-mentation in impaired waters, as well as the protection of Special Use Waters (e.g., cold water aquatic habitat, exceptional waters, state wild rivers and federal wild and scenic rivers) with identified threats.
 
To be considered for this competitive 2014 funding, a project proposal form must be submitted by the Feb. 3, 2014, deadline. The DOW NPS staff will review the project proposals and rank them according to eligibility and priority criteria to determine if they warrant further consideration and formal applications. Grant applications will only be accepted by invited entities identified through the proposal process.
 
The project proposal form, along with supporting documents, can be found at http://water.ky.gov/Funding/Pages/NonpointSource.aspx. Proposals may also be submitted throughout the year for NPS program staff review and consideration for a fu-ture grant cycle.
