Announcement of Project Approved for FY2023 Nonpoint Source and 319 Project Funding

The Utah Division of Water Quality is pleased to announce the approval of FY2023 projects. The Utah Division of Water Quality received 59 applications with a total request of $3,080,088.10. A total of 45 projects have been approved for funding.

How to Apply

We are not currently accepting applications for financial assistance of nonpoint source projects. We will begin accepting applications for new projects in February of 2023. Pre-proposals must be submitted using the Financial Assistance Application Form. The form should be used for all project types, including on-the-ground implementation, 9-element watershed plan development, and information and education.

Be as specific as possible in your pre-proposal. Include your ability to document the success of your project through monitoring before, during, and after project implementation.

Application Review Process

Once your application has been received, the Division of Water Quality (DWQ) will decide which funding source, State NPS or Section 319, will be the most appropriate for your project. Upon project completion, all grants awarded by DWQ require a final report to be submitted to the State Nonpoint Source Program Coordinator.
