Funding is available for the following entities:
In January 2011, EPA selected the Washington departments of Ecology and Commerce to receive a grant for watershed protection and restoration. This established a six-year grant program under which the state agencies receive annual allotments from EPA and pass through a large part of the funding as sub awards to other entities such as local governments.
With this funding, Ecology and Commerce are coordinating a six-year implementation strategy to protect and restore watersheds that drain into Puget Sound. This strategy is based on working in partnership with local and tribal governments and other regional entities to implement practical solutions that advance the priorities of the Puget Sound Action Agenda toward achieving the ecosystem recovery targets set by the Puget Sound Partnership.
We are funding projects across three main areas:
