Funding is intended for projects that address pollutants of concern and demonstrate how BMPs will be used to enhance water quality. This RFP is open to all waters of concern for conservation district; however, water bodies that are on the 303 (d) list of impaired waters will be given preference during the ranking process.

Pre-Application Information:

Application Deadline: Monday, May 13, at 5:00 PM

Projects must have 30% match which can be cash or in-kind. Federal funds such as 319 grant funds can also be used as match. Please Note: If your project is approved and funded, the in-kind/match being claimed in your application is what must be provided for your project. You can claim a greater in-kind/match, but must meet what is shown in the contract coming out of the application.

Successful applicants will be notified after the proposals are reviewed and approved by both the WACD and BOA. A WDA contract must be signed and approved before the implementation of the project.

In the past the WDA has provided project funding upfront upon project approval, the Department has changed how funding will be allocated. Upon approval of your application, a proponent must provide a “Yearly Plan of Work” for each year funding will be needed. Upon receipt of this request the WDA will review the “Yearly Plan of Work”, once it is approved the proponent will submit a payment voucher and then the WDA will release funding for that year.

Please note that it may take up to four months to process contracts for awarded projects. No WDA funds may be spent until all signatures have been executed and all required approvals have been granted. WDA project funds may not be used to pay for activities performed prior to the execution of the contract.
