Objective
To assist state, territory, tribal, and/or local government (S/T/LG) agencies in building programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of the grants is to build state, territory, and tribal wetland programs. A secondary focus is to build local (e.g. county or municipal) programs. Funding Priority - Fiscal Year 2021: For the National WPDGs: EPA has identified the following national priorities - National Priority Area 1: Core Elements Framework. National Priority Area 1 is based on the four core elements of a Comprehensive State/Tribal Wetlands Program: 1) Monitoring and Assessment; 2) Voluntary Wetland Restoration and Protection; 3) Regulatory Approaches Including CWA 401 Certification; and 4) Wetland-Specific Water Quality Standards. Further explanation of all of the elements can be found at the following website address: https://www.epa.gov/wetlands/wetland-program-development-grants. The Wetlands Program Development Grants (WPDG) program strives to develop State/Territory/Tribal/local government programs that will incorporate each of these elements. For the Five-Star Restoration Training Grants, EPA funds an intermediary organization to provide subawards to eligible subawardees to bring together citizen groups, corporations, youth conservation corps, students, landowners, and government agencies to undertake projects that achieve environmental training through voluntary, community/watershed-based wetland restoration projects.
