Montana Department of Environmental Quality
Contracts totaling one million dollars to address pollution and water quality issues. The purpose of the available funding is to address water quality problems that are caused by non-point source pollution. The primary goals of the grant program are: Protect the quality of clean water and to restore water quality in waterbodies whose beneficial uses are impaired by non-point source (NPS) pollution and whose water quality does not meet state standards.
Three types of grants are available through this RFP: Watershed Restoration, groundwater Protection/Restoration , and Education & Outreach. For watershed restoration the following components must be met: planning and implementing on-the-ground projects that will reduce non-point source (NPS) pollution to surface water. Projects must implement goals and objectives identified in the 2007 Montana Non-point Source Management Plan. For the second grant, applicants must implement projects that address NPS in groundwater. For education projects applicants must clearly identify the target audience and the changes in behavior or thought you expect to see as a result of the project and include a method for measuring project success.
All projects must include a monitoring component to track the success of the implemented programs. Applicants may not use more than 10% of the requested funds to cover administrative costs.
