Course Description: This workshop is designed for tribal programs addressing nonpoint source (NPS) issues under Clean Water Act Section 319 and for those currently seeking eligibility under Section 319. EPA's objectives for this workshop are to assist tribes in gaining funding to pursue NPS projects and to provide information and tools to assist tribes with current 319 programs to integrate projects into an overall watershed-based planning framework. Special emphasis will be placed on working with partners to accomplish projects and to reach funding goals.
The workshop will cover the basics of the Section 319 grant program, including applying for Treatment as a State (TAS), writing the assessment report and management program plan, and meeting eligibility requirements. There will be a focus on developing watershed-based plans to address NPS pollution problems and to achieve on-the-ground water quality improvements. A special "mini workshop" will teach attendees to use EPA's online tools and show practical applications for advanced 319 programs.
