2016 Grant Information and Awards
For State Fiscal Year 2016 (SFY16), the Department received federal funds under Section 319(h) of the CWA for pass-through grants for projects that reduce water quality impairment through implementation of NPS pollution control. The Department evaluated the water resources management issues of each region to ensure that identified problems are addressed comprehensively and holistically, with the most efficient and effective use of both regulatory and non-regulatory tools and partnerships, to achieve measurable environmental outcomes. Under the SFY16 RFP, the Department requested proposals from organizations and governmental entities for the purpose of implementing:
SFY 2016 RFP for the 319(h) grant program
- Approved WBPs or TMDLs in the Barnegat Bay and the non-tidal Raritan River Watersheds;
- Green infrastructure projects within drainage areas that are hydraulically connected to areas with documented CSOs and environmental education initiatives that advance these goals;
- Natural solutions, such as the creation of living shorelines, to address erosion and water quality issues as an alternative that adds diversity to other shore protection measures in tidally influenced areas; or
- Natural solutions, such as the creation of living shorelines, at a coastal lake that discharges directly into the Atlantic Ocean or estuarine waterbody in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth or Ocean Counties.
