EPA: USD 5 Million Grants Available for S.F. Bay Watershed Restoration (USA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now accepting proposals for nearly $5 million dollars in grants intended to protect and restore San Francisco Bay watersheds, wetlands and prevent polluted runoff.

Projects funded under this award will receive between $800,000 and $2 million, and will focus on water quality results, such as the restoration of impaired waters and the enhancement of aquatic life.

All proposals must be submitted to EPA no later than July 9, 2013.

To provide more details about this grant solicitation and answer questions about the announcement, EPA will be hosting a free, public webinar on June 19, 2013.

The EPA grants are under the San Francisco Bay Water Quality Improvement Fund (SFBWQIF) and have been issued since the fund’s inception in 2008. Since then, over $27 million for 48 projects has been distributed through 20 grant awards, with an additional $103.6 million contributed by 69 non-federal partners. San Francisco Bay grant funds have supported nineteen projects that have supported the restoration of over 4,000 acres of wetlands.
