Grants to Colorado agencies, businesses, and non-governmental entities for projects addressing water quality issues. Funding is intended for implementation, restoration, and protection projects. The purpose of the program is to address the effects of eligible types of pollution on bodies of water throughout the State.
The nonpoint source program funds projects that help restore and protect waterbodies from nonpoint source pollution impacts. Applications are now being accepted for watershed projects that restore water bodies impaired by nonpoint sources of selenium, sediment, pathogens and/or nutrients and/or protect waterbodies from nonpoint sources of pollution. As part of the project selection process, priority points are being offered for projects focused on post-fire NPS impacts and reducing NPS impacts in disadvantaged communities.
FFY21 Section 319 funds and additional funds that may become available are to address:
1. Restoration Projects: Watershed projects that construct on-the-ground best management practices (BMPs) identified in EPA Nine Element Watershed-Based Plans to restore water bodies impaired by nonpoint sources of selenium, pathogens, sediment, and/or nutrients. A waiver of the EPA Nine Element Watershed-Based Plan requirement is in place for projects addressing post-fire NPS impacts. and/or
2. Protection Projects: Watershed projects that construct on-the-ground and/or implement non-structural BMPs identified in EPA Nine Element Watershed-Based Plans or equivalent plans that meet EPA’s nine elements of watershed planning to protect waterbodies from nonpoint sources of pollution.
2021 Post-Wildfire Implementation Projects: The Nonpoint Source (NPS) Program at the Water Quality Control Division is requesting brief proposals for post-wildfire implementation projects to improve water quality impacted by NPS pollution.

Water Quality Control Division Nonpoint Source (NPS) Funding: Typical project budgets range from $200,000 to $500,000.
2021 Post-Wildfire Implementation Projects: Typical project budgets range from $200,000 to $500,000 but there is no required budget amount to qualify for funding.
The earliest start date is January/February 2022. The latest end date is November/December of 2025.
Each Section 319 NPS grant is open for a five year period. Because of the time necessary to develop Project Implementation Plans (PIPs) and contracting, this five-year grant timeframe equates to approximately three and a half years for projects to be completed. For FFY21 Section 319 NPS funds, project start dates are anticipated to be in January 2022. Dates are subject to change.
2021 Post-Wildfire Implementation Projects: Projects can be phased over multiple years.
