NOTE: This is now a rolling grant application process. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be reviewed quarterly. 

As in previous grant rounds, Ecosystem Restoration Grant applicants must discuss proposed projects with their basin planner. Basin planners will be entering proposed projects into the Watershed Projects Database and assigning it a Project Identification Number. This number must be included in the grant application prior to submission. Applicants are strongly encouraged to give basin planners as much notice as possible.

Support for the design and construction of water pollution abatement and control projects that target nonpoint sources of pollution. See the DEC Watershed Projects Database for possible projects. Other projects not currently in the database must be added to the database prior to the application deadline.


The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Clean Water Initiative Program administers the Ecosystem Restoration Grants. The goal of the program is to support projects that will restore and protect Vermont’s rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, and wetlands from nutrient and sediment pollution.
