Water: Nonpoint Source Success Stories
Section 319 Success Stories, Vol. III: State Funding Programs
|States are increasingly dedicating substantial funding above and beyond the federal funding under section 319 and the required 40 percent state match to support and sustain expanded nonpoint source management programs. States are using many different mechanisms to fund their nonpoint source activities, including bond initiatives, low-interest loan programs, grants, and land acquisition programs. States are also increasing private sector involvement in program implementation so that they can progressively decrease their current reliance on government funds to support implementation of nonpoint source best management practices. This section highlights a variety of such programs that states are administering, beyond the 319 match, to address the effects of nonpoint source pollution.
