In 2013, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law requiring the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) to prepare and post on its website a Nonpoint Priority Funding Plan (NPFP) to prioritize potential nonpoint restoration and protection actions based on available Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS), Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) plans and local water plans.
The Nonpoint Priority Funding Plan (NPFP) is a criteria-based, systematic process to prioritize Clean Water Fund (CWF) nonpoint implementation investments.
