Georgia's Clean Water Act 319(h) Grant

Grantor: Georgia Environmental Protection Division

Monday, February 7th, 2022

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GAEPD) anticipates receiving a FY2022 Section 319(h) grant to prevent or abate nonpoint source pollution in support of Georgia’s Statewide Nonpoint Source Management Plan. Using a competitive process, GAEPD will award grant funds to eligible projects that propose to address nonpoint sources of pollution by identifying and implementing the activities best suited to address those sources resulting in measurable water quality improvements to impaired waters throughout the State.

The grant requires a cost-share ratio of 60% Federal dollars (maximum) and 40% non-federal match (minimum) toward the total project cost. The maximum Federal award to any individual project is $400,000 with no minimum Federal award amount. Proposed project schedules should be completed within three years.

Eligible applicants that partner with local non-profit watershed groups will receive additional consideration for a grant award.
