Clean Water Act: Section 319 Grant Program

April 12, 2013

This US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funding program is designed to help states reduce nonpoint source pollution (pollution caused by rainfall running over the ground and carrying pollutants including trash, oil and grease, and fertilizers into nearby waterways).  The program was authorized by Section 319 of the Clean Water Act which requires states to adopt a nonpoint source management program and assess nonpoint source pollution responsible for the water quality impairments. EPA provides funding to states under Section 319, and states can subgrants to local governments. EPA’s program guidance recognizes the “importance of green infrastructure … in managing stormwater” and supported awarding funding to green infrastructure projects.
