Grants to Indiana soil and water conservation districts to enhance water quality through the reduction of nutrients and sediment from nonpoint sources. Funding is intended for long-term projects that address a current nonpoint source water quality concern within the district’s jurisdiction. Proposals that outline how funds will leverage additional funding from other sources as well as engage other partners are strongly encouraged.
The proposal must identify the current nonpoint source water quality concern(s) in the selected district(s). The proposal must also identify how addressing this resource concern pertains to both the SWCD business plan(s) and the SSCB business plan. Each application must state clearly what each partner and participating district will be contributing to the proposed project (i.e. outreach, professional assistance, estimated funds, etc.)
Conservation practices and structural measures shall follow NRCS Field Office Technical Guide where applicable. New technologies not currently in the technical guide may be implemented if reviewed and concurred in by a technical representative of the Conservation Implementation Teams (CIT) or their designee. Please note that pollinator plantings must be free of species that are noxious, invasive, and/or pigweed. To verify that seed mixes are free of these species, a district can request the seed lab card from the distributor. For more information, please contact your DSS.
Conservation practices and lab analysis of soil and water that are components of research projects are eligible. Projects relating to urban practices that will reduce sediment and nutrient are also eligible.
