Water: Nonpoint Source Success Stories
State Funding Programs: Wisconsin's Grant Programs for Runoff Management
|Wisconsin's Nonpoint Source Water Pollution Abatement Program provides grants averaging $20 million per year in both urban and rural watersheds selected for priority watershed projects. In 1997 and 1998 the Wisconsin legislature created two new grant programs to address the effects of polluted runoff. The Targeted Runoff Management (TRM) Grant Program provides up to $150,000 to rural and urban governmental units to control polluted runoff from urban and rural sites. The Urban Nonpoint Source and Stormwater Grant Program focuses on financial assistance for projects in urban areas, providing up to 70 percent of technical assistance.
