Oregon 319 Nonpoint Source Implementation Grants Application

Fiscal year 2018

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality invites stakeholders to apply for Clean Water Act §319 Nonpoint Source Grants to support implementation and planning projects that address water quality problems in surface and groundwater resources resulting from nonpoint source pollution. DEQ is seeking proposals from government agencies, tribal nations and nonprofit organizations for projects that will lead to the restoration of beneficial uses in impaired water bodies.
Funds will be made available through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under §319 of the Clean Water Act to support a wide variety of potential nonpoint source pollution management activities, including:
  • technical assistance
  • waterbody assessment
  • public awareness and education
  • training
  • technology transfer
  • demonstration projects 
  • project effectiveness monitoring
Proposals are due by 5 p.m., Jan. 8, 2018 (Refer to Section 7 for submittal requirements). Proposals will be evaluated by DEQ staff to identify those projects that best address the State’s nonpoint source priorities (see Section C).
Successful projects may commence in the Fall of 2018 after the award is received and DEQ and successful applicants have signed a §319 NPS agreement.

How do I apply? 

Submit a signed (name), and complete application (Section B). If you need additional space to present your project proposal, include it with your filled application as a Word/Excel file, making reference to the correspondent section. Proposals need to be sent to Ivan Camacho at camacho.ivan@deq.state.or.us.  Facsimiles are not accepted.
Applications will be due on Jan. 8, 2018.
