Regional Water Planning Seed Grants

From State Fiscal Year 2024 funds appropriated by the Georgia General Assembly for Regional Water Planning, EPD announces the SFY2024 Regional Water Plan Seed Grant program. The Regional Water Plan Seed Grants are being provided to support and incentivize local governments and other water users as they undertake their Regional Water Plan implementation responsibilities.

Eligible recipients of the Regional Water Plan Seed Grant funds include local, regional and State units of government, local authorities which operate local government service delivery programs, regional commissions, resource conservation and development councils, local school systems, State college and universities, and State agencies. Project proposals must specifically address implementation of management practice(s) or other recommendation(s) from one or more Regional Water Plans, and applications must include a letter of endorsement from the Water Planning Council(s) Chair or designated representative.

Grant awards are limited to $75,000 and the project period is limited to thirty (30) months in duration. Applicants must attend a pre-application meeting with EPD by October 17, 2023 and applications must be submitted online via the Grants Administration Portal by October 31, 2023.
