The Department of Environmental Protection will be accepting applications for EPA Section 319 Watershed Restoration and Planning Grants starting June 24.  The deadline for applications is August 9.  (formal notice)
DEP has established several priorities for awarding grants, including reducing nonpoint source pollution in targeted watersheds with watershed implementation plans and projects to implement the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan.  Read the PA Bulletin notice for more on priorities.
Examples of eligible projects include: design and construction of BMPs including riparian forest buffers, streambank fencing and erosion/sedimentation/nutrient control practices on cropland; animal waste storage systems; and design and construction of stormwater management BMPs and AMD treatment systems.
Other examples of eligible projects include projects that will reduce nonpoint source pollution in watersheds where streams are impaired and integrating stormwater management BMPs into watershed management strategies.
