The EPA is awarding up to $600,000 in funding to an entity to manage an Urban Watershed Capability Building Grant through the Targeted Watershed Grants Program. This grant is focused on engaging communities in capacity building activities that will foster an increased connection, understanding and ownership of their waters. Through this program, EPA hopes to encourage local communities and watershed organizations to integrate watershed plans into community development long-range plans.
Proposals should address the following two project components: (1) establish and manage a competitive urban watershed sub-award program; and (2) provide urban watershed technical services to sub-awardees. Eligible applicants include state and local governments, public and private nonprofit organizations, federally recognized Indian tribal governments and U.S. territories.
