Regional Program Funds
Fifty percent of Safe, Clean Water Program revenues are used to fund stormwater projects and programs at the watershed level. This portion of funding (referred to as the Regional Program) is distributed among nine watershed areas, to be programmed by the respective Watershed Area Steering Committees. The percentage of funds received by each Watershed Area is proportional to the tax revenues collected within its boundaries. See below for the latest estimates of Regional Program funds.
