Puget Sound Partnership -
Funding to Implement the Puget Sound Action Agenda
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) receives federal funding to support efforts to protect and restore Puget Sound. Most of the funds are used for financial assistance to state, local and Tribal governments for their efforts to implement the Puget Sound Action Agenda.
EPA selected Ecology to receive two recent grants, one for â€śToxics and Nutrients Prevention, Reduction, and Controlâ€ť and one for â€śWatershed Protection and Restorationâ€ť. Each grant is approximately $3 million. Ecology will pass through most of the money as sub awards to other entities such as local governments.
The goal of the National Estuary Program (NEP) toxics and nutrients grant is to improve both human and environmental health in the Puget Sound ecosystem by preventing, reducing and controlling toxics and nutrients from entering Puget Sound fresh and marine waters.
