Request for Applications from Eligible Counties for Watershed Stormwater Management Plan Grants

[54 Pa.B. 2694]
[Saturday, May 18, 2024]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) invites eligible counties to apply for funding to develop or revise watershed stormwater management plans under the Commonwealth's Storm Water Management Act (act) (32 P.S. §§ 680.1—680.17). The act requires counties to prepare and adopt a watershed stormwater management plan (Act 167 Plan) for each watershed located in the county in consultation with the municipalities located within each watershed. Each county must periodically review and revise their Act 167 Plan at least every 5 years. Under section 17 of the act (32 P.S. § 680.17), the Department is authorized to award grants to counties for reimbursement of costs in preparing and revising stormwater management plans when funds are appropriated by the General Assembly for this purpose.

 This grant opportunity is the second phase of the grant program to reimburse counties for costs associated with preparation or revision of Act 167 Plans. The first phase of this funding was for preparation of Act 167 Plan scopes of study, and was included in the 2023 Growing Greener Plus Grants Program, as noticed at 53 Pa.B. 1868 (April 1, 2023). This second phase of funding will provide funding to eligible counties for Act 167 Plan development or revision. Counties that have completed a Phase I scope of study in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 111.14 (relating to Phase I—scope of study) are eligible to apply for Phase II funding. Counties that have completed a Phase I scope of study through a prior grant agreement with the Department and counties that have completed a Phase I scope of study outside of a grant agreement with the Department are eligible to apply for Phase II funding.

 Grant applications and attachments must be submitted online through the Commonwealth's Electronic Single Application web site at Applications were accepted beginning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, and will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, August 30, 2024.
