Water Quality Planning and Development Projects

The planning and development project grants support assessment, planning, landowner contact, and design assistance at the local level. These projects will set the stage for future investments through local, state and federal sources to install priority practices such as wetlands, bioreactors, cover crops and saturated buffers. There are currently eight planning and development projects funded through the Water Quality Initiative.
