Projects & Funding

The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram sup­ports projects to improve water qual­ity and stream sta­bil­ity, pro­tect or improve high­way infra­struc­ture through stream and flood­plain man­age­ment, enhance stream access and recre­ation, mit­i­gate flood haz­ards and improve flood­plain man­age­ment, carry out stream research and mon­i­tor­ing, and deliver edu­ca­tion and train­ing related to stream stewardship.

Stream Man­age­ment Imple­men­ta­tion Fund­ing Program

Stream Man­age­ment Imple­men­ta­tion Pro­gram (SMIP) Funding

The Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram (AWSMP) accepts appli­ca­tions for stream man­age­ment projects in the Ashokan water­shed dur­ing two fund­ing rounds each year in the spring and fall. The most recent fund­ing round ended on April 17, 2017.

Addi­tional fund­ing is avail­able on an ongo­ing basis for munic­i­pal­i­ties in the Ashokan water­shed to imple­ment flood mit­i­ga­tion actions rec­om­mended through a com­pleted Local Flood Analy­sis (see fund­ing infor­ma­tion below under Local Flood Analy­sis Fund­ing).

SMIP fund­ing is avail­able for stream stew­ard­ship projects in the cat­e­gories of:

  • Plan­ning
  • Edu­ca­tion
  • Stream-related infra­struc­ture improvements
  • Flood haz­ard mitigation
  • Stream restora­tion

The AWSMP will issue a sep­a­rate Request for Pro­pos­als to fund research and mon­i­tor­ing projects in the summer.

SMIP appli­cants are asked to care­fully review the fol­low­ing poli­cies that apply to the SMIP before sub­mit­ting an application:

Insur­ance Require­ments
Copy­rights and Access to Infor­ma­tion
Sub­con­trac­tor Approval

For more infor­ma­tion, con­tact Leslie Zucker at (845) 688‑3047 or laz5@cornell.edu.

Since 2009, the AWSMP has awarded $3.9 mil­lion for stream man­age­ment imple­men­ta­tion projects in the Ashokan watershed.

Local Flood Analy­sis Funding

Fund­ing for munic­i­pal­i­ties to con­duct Local Flood Analy­sis (LFA) and imple­ment rec­om­mended flood mit­i­ga­tion solu­tions in eli­gi­ble com­mu­ni­ties is avail­able year-round. Local Flood Analy­sis is a cat­e­gory of fund­ing within the exist­ing Stream Man­age­ment Imple­men­ta­tion Pro­gram (SMIP) to sup­port projects led by munic­i­pal­i­ties to:

  • Deter­mine the con­di­tions con­tribut­ing to inun­da­tion of pub­lic and pri­vate infra­struc­ture asso­ci­ated with high flows within pop­u­la­tion centers;
  • Develop and ana­lyze the poten­tial of spe­cific projects, and projects in com­bi­na­tion, to mit­i­gate these flood dam­ages and hazards;
  • Pro­vide plan­ning assis­tance to char­ac­ter­ize the rel­a­tive costs and ben­e­fits of tech­ni­cally effec­tive projects; and
  • Assist com­mu­ni­ties in deter­min­ing the social fea­si­bil­ity of projects that are shown to be both tech­ni­cally and cost-effective.

The fol­low­ing Ashokan Water­shed com­mu­ni­ties are eli­gi­ble for Local Flood Analy­sis (LFA) funding:

Town of Olive: West Shokan, Boiceville, Ashokan
Town of Shan­daken: Big Indian, Shandaken/Allaben, Pine Hill, Chich­ester,
Phoeni­cia, and Mount Trem­per
Town of Hur­ley: Glenford

Fund­ing is avail­able on a rolling basis until LFAs have been com­pleted for all eli­gi­ble pop­u­la­tion cen­ters (listed above) or until July 31, 2017. All appli­ca­tions for LFA projects must be received by 4:30pm, July 31, 2017. Pro­pos­als received after this pro­posal due date and time will not be funded.

The LFA appli­ca­tion with instruc­tions is avail­able for download:

Fund­ing Appli­ca­tion for Local Flood Analy­sis Plan­ning

Appli­ca­tions to fund LFA-recommended imple­men­ta­tion projects adopted by com­mu­ni­ties may be sub­mit­ted at any time. Projects must end on or by August 30, 2019. The LFA imple­men­ta­tion appli­ca­tion with instruc­tions is avail­able for download:
