Track / Session:
Stormwater Grants and Funding / Maximize Stormwater Program Return on Investment
Description/Abstract: 

A major goal of the State Water Boards Stormwater Strategy is to eliminate funding barriers that prevent stormwater permittees from fully realizing the benefits of their stormwater program. There are several approaches that could be used to improve access to stormwater funding in the future within the Water Board as well as efforts occurring outside the Water Board. This presentation will describe what Water Board staff are doing to improve access and remove barriers to funding
