2015-17 Biennial Municipal Stormwater Grants of Regional and Statewide Significance Final Offer and Applicant List has been announced!

In July 2015, the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) solicited grant proposals for projects of regional or statewide significance to support implementation of the Municipal Stormwater General Permits. Funding for this program is carry-forward funding provided by the Washington State Legislature to Ecology for the purpose of supporting stormwater permit implementation.

Cities, towns, and counties covered by a Municipal Stormwater permit were eligible to submit project proposals. Ecology stormwater professionals reviewed, rated, and ranked the proposals. This 2015-17 Biennial Municipal Stormwater Grants of Regional and Statewide Significance Final Offer and Applicant List (Final List) completes the competitive funding process. The Final List identifies stormwater projects with regional and statewide benefits for funding.

Ecology received 26 proposals totaling more than $5,384,287 in requests for municipal stormwater grants of regional and statewide significance. Based on the funding available, Ecology proposes to fund seven projects totaling $1,695,439.25. The priority list of rated projects is at the end of this publication.
