Funding Available for Community Clean Water Projects

Published on

November 7, 2019

Municipalities, authorities, county conservation districts, educational institutions and watershed organizations can apply for new funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for projects that restore and protect water quality.

The state announced Thursday that its Growing Greener Plus program has made $30 million available for these types of projects.

Last year, the Growing Greener program supported more than 100 projects in 40 counties, according to the DEP. Those projects ranged from large-scale floodplain and stream corridor restorations to single projects, such as streambank fencing.

The funding can be used for projects to meet requirements related to municipal stormwater controls, Chesapeake Bay cleanup, agricultural runoff, climate resiliency and emerging contaminants such as PFAS.

Applications for this first round of funding will be accepted by DEP until November 20. Click here to see the guidelines and application instructions. 

If anyone has any questions about this latest round of Growing Greener grants and what they could be used for, please contact me or anyone in the Barley Snyder Environment & Energy Industry Group.
