Applications are not being accepted at this time.
The application period for restoration or enhancement projects is closed. Due to low revenue levels, we are unable to offer a robust statewide 2023 funding cycle. We anticipate the funding cycle will not open again until January 2024.
Environmental Emergency and Statewide Significance project type applications are accepted through Dec. 31, 2023.
Applicants who want to apply for these project type grants must first request approval from Ecology. Please contact Amy Krause, THA grant program coordinator, with your project proposal. If funding is available, we can initiate a new grant application in Ecology's Administration of Grants and Loans (EAGL) online system.
For more information, see our 2022 THA Funding Guidelines and application guidance documents linked below.
