Funding Range:

This program supports two types of activities:

  • Track One funding supports the development of Wetlands Program Plans (WPP), which are voluntary plans developed by state and tribal agencies that articulate what the state or tribe wants to accomplish with their wetland programs over time. WPPs describe overall program goals along with broad-based actions consistent with the CEF and more specific activities that will help achieve the goals. Timelines for the WPPs vary between 3-6 years, with more specific timeframes typically associated with the WPP actions/activities.
  • Track Two funding supports activities that will develop or refine a state, tribe, or local government’s wetland program by either carrying out one or more action(s): 1) under a core element of the WPP (e.g. monitoring, restoration,r regulatory actions, water quality issues), or 2) that advance the grant-eligible actions articulated in an EPA-approved WPP.
