Watershed Restoration Project Funding


 

Request for Federal Clean Water Act Section 319 Project Proposals

 

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (SD 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 SD DENR in either electronic or paper format by October 1, 2016. Project guidance and application requirements for submitting a project application, as well as application instructions and an example, are available from the DENR website.

 

Request for State Funding for Watershed Restoration Projects

 

Watershed Restoration projects requesting funding for the nonfederal cost share of a project must be on the State Water Facilities Plan portion of the State Water PlanState Water Plan applications must be postmarked or received at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on or before the first day of October. Applications for amendment onto the State Water Facilities Plan are considered on a quarterly basis and must be postmarked or received by the department on or before the first day of February, May and August. A watershed assessment report must accompany the application.

 

State funding for watershed restoration projects comes primarily from the Consolidated Water Facilities Construction program.

Applications must be postmarked or received on or before the first day of January, April, July and October.
