Request a Grant Writer

Grants and cooperative agreements to Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington agencies, tribes, and institutions of higher education to improve programs that restore and conserve natural resources. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take a month or more to complete. Funding is intended for projects that develop or refine state, territorial, tribal, and local government wetland programs.

Wetland Program Development Grants assist state, tribal, local government agencies and interstate/intertribal entities in developing or refining programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of these grants is to develop or refine state and tribal wetland programs. A secondary focus is to develop or refine local (e.g., county or municipal) programs.

The goals of the 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, the EPA seeks to develop the capacity of all levels of government to develop and refine effective, comprehensive programs for wetland protection and management. These programs are meant to:

  • Develop the capacity of state/territorial/tribal/local governments to increase the quantity and quality of wetlands in the U.S. by conserving and restoring wetland acreage and improving wetland condition.
  • Use one or more of the following “Core Elements” to achieve this goal. These four core elements are monitoring and assessment, voluntary restoration and protection, regulatory approaches including CWA Section 401 certification, and wetland-specific water quality standards.

Under this announcement, the EPA will have two separate applicant tracks for eligible applicants.

  • Under Track One, states, territories, and tribes must submit applications for either: 1) carrying out grant-eligible actions from a current EPA-approved WPP or 2) developing or updating a WPP (and, if they so choose, also carrying out actions that develop or refine a wetland program described in the CEF at https://www.epa.gov/wetlands/wetland-program-development-grants-eligible-activities).
  • Under Track Two, states, territories, tribes, local governments, interstate agencies, intertribal consortia, and colleges and universities that are agencies of a state must submit applications that will develop or refine a states, territorial, tribe, or local government’s wetland program by either carrying out one or more action(s): 1) under a core element(s) from the CEF or 2) that advance the grant-eligible actions articulated in an EPA-approved WPP.
