On June 24, EPA released updated guidelines for Section 319 grants under the Clean Water Act for the implementation of nonpoint source management programs.

  • The 2024 guidelines describe the requirements that apply to recipients of grants made with funds appropriated by Congress under the Clean Water Act.
  • These new guidelines will replace the Nonpoint Source Program and Grants Guidelines for States and Territories that have been in effect since the fiscal year 2014 grant cycle.

Reference Materials for the 2024 Guidelines can be found in the Federal Register Docket under Docket Number: EPA-HQ-OW-2024-0206.
