Funding for Nonpoint Source (NPS) Related Projects

Now Accepting Applications for 319 Funding

The Utah Division of Water Quality is currently accepting applications for Federal 319 grants with funding anticipated to be available on August 1, 2024. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grants the state of Utah just over $1 Million annually in 319 Funds to reduce nonpoint sources of water pollution. Proposals must be submitted using the Financial Assistance Application Form. The form can be used for all project types, including on-the-ground implementation, technical assistance, and information and education. Be as specific as possible in your application. Include your ability to document project effectiveness through monitoring before, during, and after project implementation.

Please note that this application is for Federal 319 Funds.  All 319 projects require a 40:60 nonfederal:federal match.

Application Review Process

Once your application has been received, a multidisciplinary review team with the Utah Division of Water Quality and other partnering agencies will score and rank all of the projects. Not all applications will receive funding. Funding will be allocated according to project ranking. Partial funding for projects is possible in order to maximize the benefit of this program across the state.
