This competitive grant program offers funds to counties, towns and villages in the WOH Watershed to conduct comprehensive assessments of existing public stormwater infrastructure with the goal of identifying and prioritizing areas where Best Management Practices could be beneficial. Applications through the Stormwater Retrofit Program are accepted throughout the year.
CWC funds can be used to compile a database to locate individual stormwater structures and describe their conditions and repair needs. The CWC and NYC DEP jointly review and prioritize projects. Those which describe beneficial outcomes in three categories — public value, water quality protection and local commitment, will be recommended for funding.
