Fund­ing is avail­able for stream restora­tion, stream-related infra­struc­ture improve­ment, plan­ning, flood haz­ard mit­i­ga­tion, research and mon­i­tor­ing, and edu­ca­tion projects. Pri­or­ity will be given to projects rec­om­mended in the AWSMP Action Plan and stream man­age­ment plans for the water­shed. Eli­gi­ble appli­cants include munic­i­pal­i­ties, non-profit orga­ni­za­tions, school dis­tricts, and aca­d­e­mic insti­tu­tions. For-profit firms are eli­gi­ble to apply in the research and mon­i­tor­ing cat­e­gory and for a spe­cial Request for Pro­pos­als to deliver a HEC-RAS Train­ing Work­shop for Cul­verts & Bridges.
