Grants of up to $30,000 to Montana nonprofit organizations and government agencies for projects to address pollution resulting from various diffuse sources. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended for the design and implementation of projects that reduce and prevent nonpoint source pollution in impaired waterbodies while improving water quality and restoring natural stream and lake processes.
The 319 Project Program funds on-the-ground projects that reduce or prevent nonpoint source pollution. To improve the long-term sustainability of nonpoint source reductions, projects should focus on restoring natural processes (e.g., channel migration, floodplain connectivity, native riparian revegetation). A limited amount of funding may also be used to pay for local outreach and education activities.
Projects must meet the following minimum requirements:
