Agricultural Water Quality

​​​​​​​2021-23 Support Grant

​​Oregon is taking a coordinated streamside-management approach to address ​priority water quality concerns and improve streams for fish and wildlife. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and other state agencies, local partners, and stakeholders are coordinating expertise, funding, and resources to improve water quality throughout the state. ODA’s Strategic Implementation Area (SIA) initiative was selected to implement the coordinated approach.

Beginning with the 2021-23 biennium, ODA’s Agricultural Water Quality Program will have an open solicitation for grants of $20,000 to $149,000 for Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Watershed Councils. These grants are intended to provide capacity to support voluntary agricultural water quality work in small watersheds and to meet the goals of the Agricultural Water Quality Management Area Plans and the SIA initiative.

​For this biennium only, selected proposals need to be completed by June 30, 2023. Proposals can begin a phase of work in 2021-23 and continue into future biennia with the next phase (via a future open solicitation).​ Note: No applications can be submitted before Monday, Aug. 29, 2022.
