State Grants Assist Development of Local Stormwater Programs


The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) recently issued an RFP to solicit proposals to establish grant agreements for the development of Virginia Locality Stormwater Programs. State grant applications are available here. These local programs must be developed and implemented by all localities in Virginia* no later than July 1, 2014. Local Stormwater Programs must be submitted for approval to DCR by June, 2013. Grant funding is available in amounts between $10,000 to $100,000, to assist localities in the development of their Local Stormwater Program, including the reimbursement of the cost of legal work related to the development of a draft stormwater ordinance that meets the requirements of state law and the newly revised Stormwater Regulations.

Sands Anderson’s Government team is available to assist localities and Planning District Commissions in Virginia in the preparation of these grant applications, and with the development of local stormwater ordinances, if needed. Having participated in DCR’s Local Stormwater Advisory Group meetings, and actively assisting the state in revising its proposed model stormwater ordinance, we are able to provide legal help and guidance to localities as they address these new and complex environmental requirements.
