Healthy Watersheds Protection

Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grants (HWCG)

Healthy watersheds protection occurs through a wide variety of techniques and approaches, many that far exceed the limits of EPA’s resources and roles. Through a multi-year cooperative agreement awarded in 2015, EPA is helping to support watershed protection via a healthy watersheds consortium. This consortium brings together like-minded partners from all levels of government, private organizations and industry to support individual watershed protection projects through grants, using leveraged funding from government and non-government sources together.
