EPA - Tribal Wetland Program Development Grants. Due 10/7. $3.6M Available.
Tribal Wetland Program Development Grants
Tribal Wetland Program Development Grants (WPDGs) assist tribal governments and intertribal consortia to develop or refine tribal programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of these grants is to develop/refine tribal wetland programs.
The goals of EPA’s wetland program include increasing the quantity and quality of wetlands in the U.S. by conserving and restoring wetland acreage and improving wetland condition. In pursuing these goals, EPA seeks to develop the capacity of all levels of government to develop and refine effective, comprehensive programs for wetland protection and management.
Tribal governments and intertribal consortia are eligible to apply for WPDGs under this announcement. Tribes must be federally-recognized, although “Treatment in a manner similar to a state” status in accordance with CWA Section 518(e) is not required. As explained in Section I, there will be two separate application tracks with tribal governments eligible to apply in Track One: WPP Applications or Track Two: Non-WPP Applications, and intertribal consortia eligible to only apply in Track Two: NonWPP Applications.
