Grants to Pennsylvania government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions to improve water quality and restore watersheds. Certain applicants must contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended to reduce pollution and preserve statewide water resources. The goal of the grant program is to protect and enhance the state's waters from nonpoint source pollution associated with AMD, energy resource extraction, agricultural activities, stormwater runoff, streambank, and shoreline degradation, along with verifying and demonstrating efficacy with enhanced data collection and distribution.
