Under this RFP, it is anticipated that about $201,000 in federal Clean Water Act section 205(j) funding will be available for watershed planning projects. The timeline, application and award processes this year will be similar to previous years.  We strongly suggest that applicants consult with Nonpoint Source (NPS) staff as they work with partners and stakeholders to develop potential projects.  The RFP, appendices, and all forms and instructions are posted below.

 A webinar was held on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 to explain the FY 2022 NPS Program funding for watershed planning projects. NPS staff discussed the grant application schedule, program priorities, eligibility criteria, application requirements, tips for successful applications, and answered questions from the audience.
