U.S. EPA Targeted Watersheds Grant Program: Call for Nominations   


SUMMARY: EPA today is announcing the Call for Nominations of watershed
proposals under the Targeted Watersheds Grant Program. Formerly called the
Watershed Initiative, the Targeted Watersheds Grant Program is a competitive
grant program designed to support the protection and restoration of the
country's water resources through a holistic watershed approach to water
quality management. For fiscal year 2005, Congress has appropriated a total
of $18 million for the Program of which $10 million will be directed to
nation-wide projects for improving water quality and the remaining $8
million will be directed toward projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
Today's notice sets forth the process that will be used for selecting
watersheds for the nation-wide projects, and serves as the call for
nominations from Governors and Tribal Leaders. Subsequently, EPA will
publish a separate notice that will outline the criteria and selection
process for Chesapeake Bay nominations.

electronic form, is May 19, 2005. Nominations and supporting materials
received after this deadline will not be considered.
