This is a competitive grant program to provide funds to correct or reduce water quality problems associated with erosion or substandard stormwater management conditions existing on or before January 21, 1997.
Municipalities, organizations, businesses and individual property owners may apply for funding to design, construct, implement and maintain stormwater Best Management Practices to address runoff in concentrated areas of impervious surfaces in the West-of-Hudson Watershed.
CWC and the NYC DEP jointly review and prioritize proposals, which are ranked on their relative water quality benefit. Preference is given to projects associated with Community Wastewater Management Program projects in certain Watershed communities and to those seeking to implement or address findings of Community Stormwater Infrastructure and Assessment projects funded by the CWC.
Applications are accepted at any time.
