State Provides Clean Water Grants
The State Soil Conservation Board (SSCB) awarded more than $1 million to 32 Soil and Water Conservation Districts for projects designed to improve water quality across the state. This funding is part of the Clean Water Indiana (CWI) grant program, which is administered by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.
The CWI program, funded mainly by the state’s cigarette tax revenue, was designed to support Indiana’s conservation districts, as they work to reduce non-point sources of water pollution. While the projects vary depending on the needs of each district, some examples include promoting conservation, purchasing better equipment and providing technical assistance, education and training in the community.
Districts were also encouraged to collaborate with neighboring counties and many will use this funding to leverage additional resources from outside organizations or cost-share programs.
