The funding is solely for construction or design/construction projects that result in the
greatest improvements to meet municipal stormwater permit requirements.
The final amount of funding and the final list of funding recipients will be announced after the final state budget passes at the end of this legislative session.
The original appropriation was $30 million, but the program could be reduced to $8 million to help address the state revenue shortfall.
