Prince George’s Stormwater Stewardship Grant Program
The Prince George’s County Government and the Chesapeake Bay Trust announce the fourth year of our partnership to support projects throughout Prince George’s County that aid the community while treating and controlling stormwater. The goal of this program is to improve communities, improve water quality in the County’s waterways, and engage County residents in stormwater issues.
What this funds: The Prince George’s County Stormwater Stewardship Grant Program funds on-the-ground restoration activities that improve communities and water quality and engage Prince George’s County residents in the restoration and protection of the local rivers and streams of Prince George’s County.
Proposals that meet or exceed the “Jobs First Act” CB-17-2011 are preferred.
Grant applicants are encouraged to coordinate with the County’s Supplier Development and Diversity Division ( http://www.princegeorgescountymd.gov/1247/Commitment-to-Business) for County-based certified small business use in connection with the implementation of proposed grant projects. County-based business and County-based small business certification under CB-74-2016 (DR2) undergo extensive certification review through their existing minority business enterprise certification procedures, which establish capabilities and their principal places of operation in the County.
All applications go through a Technical Review Committee. The technical team reviews the proposals based on cost benefit, experience, suitability for implementation, consistency with the Request for Proposals (RFP), sustainability, and other selection criteria that are relevant to the proposal and that are published in the RFP.
The DoE Clean Water Map provides past project locations, Transforming Neighborhood Initiative areas (preferred areas for project locations), and other mapping information that can support your project development/management.
