319 Project Guidance and Application Requirements



Request for Clean Water Act Section 319 Project Proposals


The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) requests proposals for Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 319(h) funds.


CWA Section 319(h) funds are provided to the states for two purposes:

   1) manage the state's nonpoint source (NPS) program; and
   2) projects that identify and address NPS pollution problems


Section 319 implementation project funds are awarded to support the most effective and highest priority projects. Projects can be in one of three general categories - watershed, ground water, and information and education.


To be considered for funding, applications must be received by DENR in either electronic or paper format by Oct. 1. Project guidance and application requirements for submitting a project application, as well as application instructions and an example, are available from the DENR website.
