Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations, government agencies, school districts, and IHEs for activities to reduce and prevent water pollution throughout the state. Funding is intended to support projects to develop and implement watershed protection plans. Funds may be used for activities such as data collection, assessment, management practices, and outreach that lead to the decrease of nonpoint source pollution.
TCEQ is seeking projects that assist the state in implementing the State of Texas NPS Management Program. Applications will be evaluated against identified criteria and projects selected. The NPS Management Program includes multiple strategies for addressing NPS pollution; however, the TCEQ is specifically seeking projects that implement measures with a high probability of restoring impaired water bodies or achieving significant pollutant load reductions.
Priority is given to the development and implementation of watershed protection plans. Local stakeholder groups guide the development of these plans to restore and protect water quality in specific Texas waterways. This planning process commonly involves gathering and/or assessing water quality data and using models to determine the causes and sources of pollution, followed by strategic selection of management measures to assure the water bodies meet water quality standards. Half of this grant program’s funding must be spent to implement federally accepted watershed plans.
For more information, see https://www.tceq.texas.gov/waterquality/nonpoint-source/mgmt-plan/index.html and its companion updated Priority Waters List found in Supporting Documents below. (These identify waters impaired by NPS pollution that are of particular interest for this grant program.)
