Across Lancaster County, clean water is a priority. With the majority of Lancaster County streams and much of our groundwater unhealthy, the community is a priority area for reducing nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment by 2025 in accordance with Lancaster’s Countywide Action Plan (CAP). The Lancaster Clean Water Fund provides a unique opportunity for grantees to work landowners, leaders and communities across the county on education, restoration and protection projects to improve water quality. The fund supports the projects that address clean water priorities as well as the pollution reduction goals in Lancaster’s CAP. Projects funded are part of a communitywide collaborative effort to reach the shared goals of better water quality.
Agriculture, stormwater or storm restoration projects are eligible.
This funding is intended for implementation projects but design and/or engineering may be eligible for up to 25% of construction costs and 5% of administrative costs.
