State of Ohio Accepting Project Applications for 2024 Wetland Grant Program

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is currently accepting applications for the 2024 Statewide Wetland Grant Program, as part of Governor DeWine’s H2Ohio initiative. This program aims to fund high-quality natural infrastructure projects that will enhance water quality and reduce nutrient runoff across the state.

The grant offers up to 100% funding for eligible projects, with a minimum funding request of $50,000, and no maximum cap. In 2023, ODNR allocated $8.2 million in H2Ohio grants to support 12 new wetland projects in 11 Ohio counties, benefiting a variety of grantees including non-profits, park districts, and local entities. 5/6/2024
