EPA assists states, tribes, and local governments to protect and improve wetlands within their jurisdictions by awarding monetary grants under section 104(b)(3) of the Clean Water Act. Each year, usually in the fall, we announce availability of funds. These funds are awarded on a competitive basis. The application period is now open through April 1, 2014! Click below for the request for proposals (RFP).

Notification of upcoming changes:

Two year grant cycle beginning in fiscal year 2015 (FY15): Region 9 will conduct a biennial Wetland Program Development Grant (WPDG) solicitation for multiple year funding beginning FY 15. This means grant solicitation will go out ONCE every TWO years instead of once a year as it has been in the past. The FY15 WPDG solicitation will cover FY15 and FY16 and the next WPDG solicitation will take place in FY17, covering FY17 and FY18. Please take note of this change and plan for next year’s RFP accordingly. Region 9 would like to offer an opportunity for you to learn more about the two year grant cycle, WPDGs and Wetland Program Plans, and will be offering a webinar in the coming months. A FAQ will be posted as well later this year.

Expected Electronic Submission Requirement in FY 15: EPA is moving towards electronic submission of all competitive grant applications through www.grants.gov Exiting EPA (disclaimer) . It is expected that all solicitations issued on or after October 1, 2014 will require applicants to submit their application materials electronically through www.grants.gov Exiting EPA (disclaimer) .
