BWSR grants nearly 1200 grants totaling more than $40 million per year to local units of government through more than 30 unique programs.  This includes competitive and noncompetitive grants. Funds may be appropriated through the Clean Water Fund, Lessard Sams Outdoor Heritage Council, the general fund, or direct appropriations.
