Grants of up to $50,000 to Vermont agencies, hospitals, educational institutions, nonprofit associations, conservation districts, citizen groups, and regional planning commissions to design, engineer, and implement projects to improve water quality throughout the region. Funding is intended to support forestry, lake shoreland, river, and stormwater projects that reduce sediment and nutrient pollution of surface waters.
The Southern Windsor County Regional Planning Commission (SWCRPC) is administering a second block grant to support the design and implementation of clean water improvement and protection projects. Funding is provided by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP). SWCRPC seeks proposals for preliminary engineering design, final engineering design, and construction of clean water projects.
The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP) provides funds in the form of grants and contracts to support projects that reduce sediment and nutrient pollution, including phosphorus, from runoff and soil erosion that discharge into the state’s rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, and wetlands. CWIP also provides technical support to the Vermont Clean Water Board charged with allocating clean water funds. 1 CWIP-funded projects focus on stormwater runoff and erosion abatement from developed lands, natural resource restoration, agriculture and forest management runoff controls, and equipment with demonstrated water quality benefit.
CWIP tracks and reports on priority projects to restore Vermont’s waters, and communicates progress toward meeting water quality restoration targets in addition to managing clean water funds. These water quality targets are outlined in long-term remediation plans known as Total Maximum Daily Loads (or TMDLs). 2TMDL implementation is supported by state authorities contained in the Vermont Clean Water Act (Act 64 of 2015).
