State General Fund Agricultural BMP Program - Clearwater Basin Project Proposals

In the 2017 legislative session, a motion was made to appropriate $500,000 from the general fund to DEQ to apply statewide agricultural best management practices for fiscal year 2018. The funding will be used for high-priority Idaho watersheds and administered through DEQ's 319 grant program. Links to the two projects proposed in the Clearwater Basin are below, please contact the applicant with any project specific questions.

These two projects will be ranked by the Clearwater BAG by September 15, 2017 and funds will be awarded on October 1, 2017.
