Wetland Program Development Grant Highlights

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began the Wetland Program Development Grants program in 1990 to help states, tribes, local governments, and others develop programs and projects to protect and restore wetlands. The Wetland Grants Database houses data for grants awarded through this program. Visit the database: Wetland Grants Database (http://iaspub.epa.gov/wgd-public).

EPA is highlighting select grants in the Environmental Law Institute's National Wetland Newsletter starting with the May/June 2010 issue. To learn more about each of the following grants, please click on the grant title, and then click on the link "Click here for Public Access (read-only)". You will be taken straight to the Wetland Grants Database grant record for the relevant grant.
