Description The Direct Implementation Fund (DIF) program is for projects that:
a) Accomplish direct implementation activities on sites which have been identified by Ecology regional staff within a targeted priority watershed/waterbody or through complaint response.
b) Implement a specific high priority action (program or project) from a TMDL, alternative watershed implementation plan or initiative to achieve measurable results towards improving water quality.
Funds should be directed to achieve maximum benefit in a concentrated area to work with other projects and investments towards an established water quality goal. The targeted watershed should have an effectiveness monitoring program in place.
The program is not meant to circumvent the competitive grant process.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
