The the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the award. The EPA/NFWF Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction (INSR) Grant Program awarded $6.1 million to 11 projects in the Chesapeake Bay watershed with recipients providing more than $9 million in matching funds. The INSR Program provides grants to innovative and cost-effective projects that dramatically reduce or eliminate the flow of nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment pollution into local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. Funding for these projects was awarded through the NFWF Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund (CBSF).
