2023 Nonpoint Source Grant Program – Clean Water Act is Now Open for Proposals

The Nonpoint Source Grant Program – Clean Water Act is now open for proposals; the deadline to submit is Dec. 19, 2022.

The Nonpoint Source Grant Program seeks proposals for projects that reduce runoff of pollution to waters of the state of California, such as agricultural projects that reduce pesticide and nutrient runoff, improvement or decommission of dirt roads to reduce erosion and sediment runoff, streambank stabilization to reduce erosion, marina programs to reduce toxic discharges from anti-fouling paints on boats, and infrastructure improvements for ranching and livestock operations to reduce erosion and runoff of nutrients and pathogens.

The 2023 Nonpoint Source Grant Program Guidelines posted on the NPS Grant Program website describe program preferences, eligibility requirements, application process and instructions, project selection criteria and the grant award process. Please note one of the minimum eligibility requirements is to consult with the NPS Grant Coordinator in the corresponding Regional Water Board listed in Appendix 7 of the Guidelines.

Please submit your proposal using the State Water Board’s FAAST system at https://faast.waterboards.ca.gov.
