Region 5 Wetland Program Development Grant Request for Applications
Region 5 FY 2021 - FY 2022 Wetland Program Development Grant RFA
Wetland Program Development Grants (WPDGs) assist state, tribal, local government agencies and interstate/intertribal entities in developing or refining state/territorial/tribal/local programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of these grants is to develop/refine state, territorial, and tribal wetland programs. A secondary focus is to develop/refine local (e.g., county or municipal) programs. Projects must be performed within one or more of the states or federally recognized tribes of EPA Region 5 specifically within the geographic boundary of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and/or Wisconsin to be eligible to apply for funding. In the case of inter-jurisdictional watershed projects, they must be primarily implemented in EPA Region 5.
