Process for applying and receiving funds:
Proponents seeking funding must send a short project proposal (one page) to Mike Simpson, SWC Project Manager by April 10, 2018. The proposal must outline how the proponent and the project meet the criteria described above.
The SWC’s Water Protection Advisory Committee will review project proposals in April/May 2018, and make a recommendation to the SWC for approval in May 2018
Work by the proponent may begin shortly thereafter. Advance payment may be made upon request (with some limitations).
Requirements for successful applicants:
Enter into a contractual agreement with the SWC for the funds
Report briefly, in writing, to the SWC during and after the project’s completion
Reporting will include a summary of tasks underway/completed, and expenditures of funds
Provide "before" and "after" photographs of the project site
Ideally, the proponent will be available to do a short presentation to the SWC’s Water Protection Advisory Committee after project completion, and possibly host a site tour.
