Grants to Florida local and state agencies, IHEs, water-management districts, and National Estuary programs to reduce water pollution. Funding is intended to combat pollution from sources other than industrial plants, such as storm water. The purpose of the grant is to decrease nonpoint source pollution from land-use activities.

Examples of fundable projects or programs include, but are not limited to:
- Demonstration and evaluation of best management practices (BMPs)
- Nonpoint pollution reduction in priority watersheds (e.g., areas with water quality restoration plans, etc.). Example includes treatment of impaired waters.

Examples include laying the lateral for the residence/business to the sewer main, the connection to the sewer, installing a grinder pump/station on residents property, and abandonment of the septic system if the septic tank would be a continued source of pollution.
