Funding for Nonpoint Source (NPS) Related Projects

Now Accepting Applications for FY2025 State Nonpoint Source Funding

The Utah Division of Water Quality is currently accepting applications for State Nonpoint Source grants with funding to be available on July 1, 2024. The Utah Water Quality Board allocates $1 Million annually in hardship grant funds to reduce nonpoint sources of water pollution. Proposals must be submitted using the FY2025 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 although state nonpoint source funding does not have a minimum match requirement, cost-sharing is an evaluation criterion, and we encourage projects developed as part of a broader effort.

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.
