NOTICE OF GRANT OPPORTUNITY
Water Quality Monitoring Grant Program
REQUEST FOR GRANT PROPOSALS

 

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), Bureau of Water Resources, Watershed Planning Program (WPP) is excited to offer the Water Quality Monitoring Grants Program for a second year.

With more than 3,000 lakes and ponds and 12,000 miles of streams and rivers in the state, MassDEP's WPPcan sample just a small fraction of these surface waters in any given year. MassDEP’s goal in presenting this grant opportunity is to supplement its own surface water quality dataset (“internal dataset”) with data collected by groups outside of the agency (“external dataset”). To help meet this goal, MassDEP is soliciting grant proposals for the collection of bacteria data in surface waters during the 2020 summer sampling season (i.e., from April 1st to October 15th). This external dataset will enhance the amount and spatial coverage of data that MassDEP's WPP can use in the assessment of primary and secondary contact recreation activities in surface waters of the Commonwealth.

The Water Quality Monitoring Grant Program Request for Grant Proposals document summarizes the proposal and qualification requirements, identifies a specific format for responding to this Grant Opportunity, and outlines the grant application schedule. The Water Quality Monitoring Grant Program Request for Grant Proposals document can be found at the following MassDEP website: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/grants-financial-assistance-watersheds-water-quality.

Important dates for applicants:

Written questions can be submitted to the Grant Program Manager at meghan.selby@mass.gov until 12:00 p.m. on December 4, 2019.

Grant applications must be received by the Grant Program Manager by 12:00 p.m. on December 20, 2019.
