The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is calling all landowners, local government, non-profit groups, and other organizations to its northwest Ohio H2Ohio wetland workshop.

H2Ohio Wetland Grant Program Workshop

The H2Ohio Wetland Grant Program provides up to 100% reimbursement on wetland projects that create high quality, natural infrastructure projects. Qualified projects focus on reducing excess nutrients that flow into Ohio’s waterways, which leads to improved water quality around the state.

The H2Ohio wetland grant program is available in northwest Ohio and is accepting applications year-round. In this presentation, ODNR’s H2Ohio staff will explain the requirements for an eligible project and review how the program works once a project has been awarded grant funds. Staff will be available to answer questions and discuss potential project ideas.

H2Ohio is Governor DeWine’s statewide water quality initiative designed to address complex issues impacting Ohio’s waters. Launched in 2019, H2Ohio uses a comprehensive approach guided by science and data to reduce algal blooms, stop pollution, and improve access to clean drinking water by supporting best farming practices, road salt runoff reduction, litter cleanup, dam removal, land conservation, and water infrastructure revitalization.
