Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.


EPA awards grants to state and tribal agencies to deal with nonpoint sources of water pollution. Under the authority of Section 319(h) of the Clean Water Act, EPA makes funds available to state and tribal agencies to implement their approved nonpoint source management programs. These programs can contain components involving technical assistance, technology transfer, and demonstration projects. Each year, EPA awards Section 319(h) funds to states in accordance with a state-by-state allocation formula that EPA has developed in consultation with the states.
