The Ashokan Watershed Stream Management Program announces the availability of funding to implement stream stewardship projects in the Ashokan Watershed. 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. Awards will be distributed on a rolling basis until the fund is depleted. A special limitation is that all projects must be completed by August 30, 2019. Approximately $150,000 is available for award. Applications will be reviewed by the AWSMP Stakeholder Council on a monthly basis. Awards will be announced on April 26, 2019 for applications submitted by April 12, 2019.
