Grants Available to Improve Lake Tahoe Water Quality

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Division of State Lands (NDSL) announces available funding from the Lake Tahoe Water Quality and Erosion Control Grants Program to implement Environmental Improvement Program (EIP) projects on the Nevada side of the Lake Tahoe Basin. This includes water quality and stream environment zone (SEZ) restoration and enhancement projects. Non-state agency applicants must provide a minimum 25% matching funds.

Pre-applications are due in the NDSL office by 5 pm on January 11, 2013. Eligible projects will then be invited in writing to submit a full application which will be due on February 15, 2013. The full application has been updated this year and will not be available until January 2, 2013. These grants are not open to California agencies or residents.

In order to be eligible, projects must be identified in the current Environmental Improvement Program, be a benefit to the general public and, if the project includes the treatment of storm water, the storm water must be shown to be connected to a surface water body.
