Huron County, Ontario – The Huron Clean Water Project is a fund that supports water quality projects in Huron County. There is a total of $500,000 in available funds for water quality projects by Huron County residents, landowners, and community groups.
“Now is an excellent time to apply for funding from the Huron Clean Water Project,” said Warden Glen McNeil. “This time of year is ideal to prepare for a spring tree planting project, submit an over-wintered cover crop incentive applications, plan a wetland restoration project, or there’s even still time to plant some fall trees!”
Limited funding assistance covering up to 50% of the costs of eligible projects is awarded to county farmers, rural landowners, businesses and community organizations. County of Huron funding can be combined with other sources such as the Canada-Ontario Environmental Farm Plan cost-share program, Canada Nature Fund, and Forests Ontario tree planting subsidy programs.
Investing and participating in on-the-ground water quality improvement projects contributes to a healthy environment and will provide lasting benefits for the residents of Huron County and generations to follow.
The Maitland Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) and the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) deliver the program on behalf of the County.
