Counties are the only eligible applicants for these grants. A county may apply for any or all of these grant components. In addition, a county is responsible for providing the required match. To be eligible for the NRBG, a county must have a locally adopted and BWSR approved comprehensive local water management plan, complete a written application, provide a resolution authorizing the signatures on the application and required match, and must have submitted an annual report. This grant program is administered on a fiscal year basis. Applications are completed on BWSR’s eLINK system.

For information about the application process, local governments should contact their board conservationist.
