Stream Restoration & Debris Removal Grant Progam Guidance Now Available
Funding has been made available through Senate Bill 14-179 to the Stream Restoration Grant Account within the Flood and Drought Response Fund for watershed cleanup and stream restoration in areas affected by the September 2013 flood. Both private and individual entities are permitted to apply. Awards will be based on planning and project efforts, which integrate multi-objectives in restoration and flood mitigation. Projects may include designs to reconfigure channels, stabilize stream channels, remove debris from the stream channel and/or floodplain, provide habitat for aquatic and terrestrial species, re-vegetate riparian areas, mitigate flood hazards, improve recreational opportunities, provide fish passage, and increase the capacity to utilize water. More information and the application for the program can be found in the Guidance and Application links below. Applications are due July 1 and if funds remain after the first grant cycle, additional grant cycles will be announced. 
**Please note this Grant Program is NOT geared toward reimbursing work on projects that have already been completed.
