Projects to Prevent or Reduce Nonpoint Source Water Pollution

Information about projects funded under the Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution Grant Program.

What is an NPS Project?

A project is an activity with a specific objective to accomplish and a limited schedule in which to accomplish it. The NPS Program at TCEQ administers projects using funds awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Section 319(h) of the federal Clean Water Act. These grant projects must implement elements of the state's NPS Management Plan.

How Are NPS Projects Awarded and Funded?

EPA awards Section 319(h) grant funds annually to TCEQ and to the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (for agricultural and silvicultural NPS projects only). TCEQ uses most of the funds to partially reimburse the cost of projects performed by sub-grantees. Sub-grantees may be state agencies, local governments, other subdivisions of the state, or nonprofit organizations. TCEQ awards 319(h) grants competitively. Visit TCEQ's NPS Grant Program page for more information about how to apply for funds.
