The Water Finance Clearinghouse allows communities to access information and resources for water infrastructure and services, including funding sources and reports. The Clearinghouse contains information on watershed protection and source water.
The National Source Water Collaborative brings together 30 different collaborative efforts across the United States to share information and encourage coordination between entities working toward the common goal of source water protection.
Investing in habitat restoration and ecosystem resiliency projects provides sustainable and lasting benefits that reduce risks posed to coastal communities from extreme weather events, changing environmental conditions, and known or potential climate change impacts. The Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants Program is intended to build the resilience of coastal ecosystems and communities in the U.S. This grant program funds projects that develop healthy and sustainable coastal ecosystems through on-the-ground habitat restoration and conservation.
The Regional Coastal Resilience Grants program supports regional approaches to activities that build resilience of coastal regions, communities, and economic sectors to the negative impacts from extreme weather events, climate hazards, and changing ocean conditions.
The Environmental Protection Agency Source Water Protection page provides information on source water assessments, community planning, funding, and partnerships focused on source water protection.
The Coastal Wetland and Tributary Decision Support Tool for the Duck-Pensaukee is an interactive, online map designed to help conservationists prioritize sites in the Duck-Pensaukee Watershed for land protection and restoration projects. The Duck-Pensaukee Watershed is a sub-watershed of Green Bay and faces serious conservation challenges. These challenges include the loss of coastal wetlands, which clean polluted water, intercept waste, protect our shorelines from erosion, provide food and shelter for migratory birds, and serve as nurseries for fish and other aquatic life.
The Fund for Lake Michigan's grant making is focused on projects in southeastern Wisconsin that will:
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are focusing on restoring natural water flow and ecological processes between coastal wetlands in the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (Ohio) and adjacent to Lake Erie to improve fish and wildlife habitat. Thus far, this pilot project has resulted in a model that can be used to estimate total phosphorus and total sediment loads to a reconnected wetland using high frequency turbidity and discharge measurements.
The FEMA Flood Map Service Center (MSC) is the official public source for flood hazard information produced in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Users can use the MSC to find their official flood map, access a range of other flood hazard products, and take advantage of tools for better understanding flood risk.
