The funding was provided through the Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, which awards competitive grants of up to $1 million to projects that demonstrate innovative and cost-effective approaches to dramatically reduce or eliminate pollution to the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers. This year, a total of $12.9 million was awarded to 24 innovative nutrient and sediment reduction projects in Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. The Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund is administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation with funding from the U.S. EPA's Chesapeake Bay Program Office.
