NonPoint Source Pollution Control Project Grants

June 30, 2014

Maine DEP Announces 2 Non Point Source Pollution Control Project Grants

Maine DEP has issued 2 Requests for Proposal for their 2015 Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Project Grants

Deadline is the same for both grants: 2:00PM on August 12, 2014

First grant is for Development of a Watershed-based Plan ($42,000 available; 1-3 grants will be awarded)

A watershed-based plan provides assessment and management information and describes actions needed to restore NPS-impaired water bodies or protect water bodies threatened by NPS pollution.  A watershed-based plan accepted by the DEP is a prerequisite to be eligible to apply for NPS grant funds to help implement the plan.

Second grant is for Implementation of a Watershed-based Plan ($800,000 available; awards ranging from $50,000 - $150,000)

A watershed-based plan previously accepted by the DEP is a prerequisite to be eligible to submit a proposal for an implementation grant.  Refer to Appendix 1 of the RFP for a listing of the 38 plans accepted by the DEP since 2005.
