The project is being funded by a $660,000 grant from the EPA Watershed Management Assistance Program Grant program. Contributions from partners are matching the grant and total $220,000. The grant program assists local and tribal governments with integration of watershed protection and land use decisions as they implement the Puget Sound Partnership’s Action Agenda. Grant funds must be used to support protection and restoration of high value, aquatic resources, and enhance local programs in areas threatened by growth. Measurable outcomes expected by EPA include land protection, water quality protection and restoration, and riparian/aquatic habitat protection and restoration.
