Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations, agencies, and institutions to restore the quality of polluted watersheds throughout the State. Funding is intended to support restoration projects on State waters and streams that were impaired by nonpoint source pollution.
The 319 Grant Program grants funds to implement watershed restoration plans that will help restore waters impaired* by nonpoint sources of pollution. Funds may be used to conduct watershed restoration projects such as stormwater and agricultural best management practices and restoration of impaired streams. Section 319 grant projects must be used to help restore waterbodies in areas with approved watershed restoration plans.
*Impaired waters are those for which existing state or other approved monitoring entities’ data shows exceedance of a water quality standard for a given pollutant.
Both the U.S. EPA and North Carolina Division of Water Resources place a strong emphasis on achieving “measurable results” for projects selected to receive 319 Grant funding. To that end, projects should be sited as close to the impaired reach as possible to best target identified sources of water quality degradation.
