Wetlands Program Development Grants

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the Adobe PDF files on this page. See EPA's PDF page for more information about getting and using the free Acrobat Reader.

The Wetland Program Development Grants (WPDGs), initiated in fiscal year (FY) 1990, provide eligible applicants an opportunity to conduct projects that promote the coordination and acceleration of research, investigations, experiments, training, demonstrations, surveys, and studies relating to the causes, effects, extent, prevention, reduction, and elimination of water pollution. While WPDGs can continue to be used by recipients to build and refine any element of a comprehensive wetland program, priority will be given to funding projects that address the three priority areas identified by the EPA: Developing a comprehensive monitoring and assessment program; improving the effectiveness of compensatory mitigation; and refining the protection of vulnerable wetlands and aquatic resources. States, tribes, local governments (S/T/LGs), interstate associations, intertribal consortia, and national non-profit, non-governmental organizations are eligible to apply.

The Wetland Grants Database contains further information on Wetland Program Development Grants that were awarded in past years.

Wetland Program Development Grants Summaries, 2006-2011

Grant summaries for past grants from 2006-2011 (PDF) (226 pp, 1.1MB) contains summaries of Wetland Program Development Grants awarded from 2006 through 2011; includes project titles, descriptions, contact information, and links to the complete grant record in the Wetland Grants Database.

Applicants for Wetland Program Development Grants should examine the grant summaries in this PDF and consider whether there is any information from any grants similar to their current proposals that the applicant can benefit from (such as project design, deliverables, etc.). To that end, EPA has categorized the grants by topic area. Within each topic area, the grants are arranged first chronologically by year and then alphabetically by the state the grants work took place in. Along with project titles and descriptions, we have provided contact information if applicants want to talk to project implementers.

We have also provided a link for each grant to the complete grant record in the Wetland Grants Database. There, users can find additional information for these grants, including dollar figures, and project deliverables and final reports (the latter two are only available for closed-out grants).

EPA highlighted select Wetland Program Development Grants in the Environmental Law Institute's National Wetland Newsletter starting with the May/June 2010 issue and ending with the May/June 2011 issue. The highlighted grants are available on the Wetland Program Development Grant Highlights page.
