The Clean Water Act Section 205(j) Grant Program is designed for projects aimed at reducing and eliminating pollution at the state level through community planning processes. Section 205(j) funding was previously allocated through Section 604(b) of the Clean Water Act. Eligible organizations include municipal governments, county governments, conservation districts, and regional planning commissions. Typical projects have included watershed management planning, identification of appropriate Best Management Practices (BMPs), GIS mapping, and sewer feasibility studies.
The funding for this program is provided by U.S. EPA under the authority of the Clean Water Act. No match is required by the community. Usual annual funding from U.S. EPA Region 5 to the state ranges from $0 to $450,000. The average project receives $30,000 to $70,000.
