DCR to Issue $1.62M Grant Funding to Municipalities for Stormwater Programs

The Commonwealth of Virginia is providing an incentive to municipalities to update existing or develop new stormwater ordinances and/or programs sooner rather than later – to the tune of $1.62M, with individual awards ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. A minimum requirement is the draft ordinance and funding and staffing plan, which does not have to be approved by the local elected body, must be submitted for review by DCR by April 1, 2013.
