Ohio Water Quality Improvement Grants Available

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Approximately $2.7 million in grant money is available to local governments, park districts, soil and water conservation districts and other public organizations for projects that improve and protect water quality and resources in Ohio. 

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is accepting applications for water quality project grants through Nov. 9. Funding for the grants is made available through Section 319 of the federal Clean Water Act.

“Gov. [Mike] DeWine is committed to improving water quality across Ohio, and these grants help our local partners tackle projects that improve our rivers and streams,” said Anne Vogel, Ohio EPA director. “Restoring and preserving our beautiful rivers supports economic development and is part of what makes Ohio the best place to live, work and play.”

The application and request for proposals are available on the Ohio EPA’s website.
