LWI Watershed Regions


The Regional Capacity Building Grant Program is designed to help the state’s eight provisional watershed regions build staff capacity for regional watershed management, as well as provide technical assistance to municipal partners throughout each region. The goal of the program is to support strong and effective governance for each watershed region and ensure each region operates in a way that maximizes flood mitigation efforts and funds for risk-reduction projects as they become available.
