Request a Grant Writer

Grants and cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, NGOs, agencies, and intertribal consortia to promote the protection of natural resources. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take a month or more to complete. Funding is intended for wetland program development or refinement.

The goals of EPA’s Wetlands Program include increasing the quantity and quality of wetlands in the United States by conserving and restoring wetland acreage and improving wetland condition. Under the WPDGs, EPA seeks to build the capacity of all levels of government to develop or refine effective, comprehensive programs for wetland protection and management. This announcement seeks applications from eligible applicants for projects that develop or refine state, tribal, or local government wetland programs as a whole, or individual components of those programs.

Under this National Priority Area, EPA is soliciting applications from eligible applicants for projects that are designed to support state, tribal, and/or local government program officials, staff, and/or other interested stakeholders, and address state, tribal, and/or local government wetland program development or refinement. These projects should help state, tribal, and/or local governments determine and examine wetland-related needs (e.g., wetland loss of acreage or function, public perception of the value of wetlands, and management of wetland resources); program development needs; and/or develop solutions to wetland-related challenges by creatively applying the full array of available planning, technical, outreach/education, and financial tools or developing such tools.

Awards made under this announcement will support progress towards EPA’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 – FY 2022 Strategic Plan for the following goal and objective:

  • Goal 1 - A Cleaner, Healthier Environment: Deliver a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment for all Americans and future generations by carrying out the Agency’s core mission.
  • Objective 1.2 - Provide for Clean and Safe Water: Ensure waters are clean through improved water infrastructure and, in partnership with states and tribes, sustainably manage programs to support drinking water, aquatic ecosystems, and recreational, economic, and subsistence activities.
