Grants to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, and environmental entities for projects that protect and restore water resources across the state. Applicants must contact the funding source prior to submitting a mandatory pre-proposal. Funding is intended to support projects that address watershed pollution and improve water quality by measurable means.
Each year the NHDES solicits projects to address nonpoint source (NPS) pollution through the implementation of watershed-based plans in priority watersheds. Projects must comprehensively address NPS problems, and must have a quantitative way to assess progress and determine success. and include the nine, minimum elements required by the EPA. Funded projects must make reasonable progress toward achieving the water quality goal established in the watershed-based plan.
NHDES may award grants for projects that will restore or protect high-quality waters in conformance with EPA’s Nonpoint Source Program Grant Guidelines for States and Territories (April 12, 2013) and the priorities identified in the New Hampshire Nonpoint Source Management Program Plan 2020-2024. Projects must implement one or more components of an existing watershed-based plan that meets the EPA Watershed Plan criteria, or implement an EPA and NHDES approved alternative plan.
