Clean Water Grants

Vermont Clean Water Initiative Program Spending Plan

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP) funds projects that restore, protect, and maintain water quality. The CWIP State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2023 Spending Plan serves as a communication tool to clean water project proponents and prospective/current grant/contract recipients outlining current year (SFY 2023) funds available and anticipated funding opportunities. CWIP’s Spending Plan also serves as an internal planning tool to track annual progress implementing funding programs and initiatives. Initiatives and funding levels are subject to change over the year based on demand and administrative capacity. The State Fiscal Year 2023 runs from July 2022 through June 2023. CWIP continues to operate under the SFY 2021 Funding Policy until otherwise noticed on this page. 

Vermont Clean Water Initiative Program Funding Policy

 The CWIP State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2021 Funding Policy outlines:

  • DEC and external grantee/contractor roles and responsibilities related to funding programs; and
  • Criteria to determine eligible uses of funds.

The Funding Policy applies to all clean water funding initiatives administered by the CWIP. Current/prospective grant/contract recipients are responsible for reviewing and complying with the Funding Policy. Appendix A in the SFY 2021 Funding Policy is supplanted by the SFY 2022 Spending Plan provided on this page.
