Watershed and Flood Prevention Program

Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Program (PL-566)

The Watershed Program assists Federal, State, local agencies, local government sponsors, tribal governments, and program participants to protect and restore watersheds from damage caused by erosion, floodwater, and sediment, to conserve and develop water and land resources, and to solve natural resource and related economic problems on a watershed basis. The program provides technical and financial assistance to local people or project sponsors and requires local and state funding contributions.
