Pennsylvania Most Effective Basins Grants 2022 Request for Proposals
Full Proposal Due Date: Thursday, April 28, 2022 by 11:59pm ET
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the federal-state Chesapeake Bay Program partnership, is soliciting proposals to restore water quality and habitats of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributary rivers and streams in Pennsylvania.
NFWF is soliciting proposals under the Pennsylvania Most Effective Basins (PA-MEB) grants program for projects that accelerate implementation of cost-effective agricultural best management practices (“practices”) in selected basins of the Chesapeake Bay watershed of Pennsylvania. The intent of the PA-MEB program is to assist the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in achieving its 2025 water quality goals for the agricultural sector under the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and Pennsylvania’s Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP). NFWF will award grants of up to 1,000,000 for projects that result in the direct implementation of eligible agricultural best management practices.
Including regular federal appropriations and funds allocated through the 2021 bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, NFWF estimates awarding up to $12 million in grants through the PA-MEB program in 2022 contingent on the availability of funding. Major funding comes from the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program Office.
All projects must occur wholly within selected basins of the Chesapeake Bay watershed in Pennsylvania, identified as the most effective basins for reducing the effects of excess nutrient loading to the Bay. EPA identified these most effective basins based on both cost effectiveness and the capacity of practices implemented in each basin to positively influence dissolved oxygen in the Bay. A map of the most effective basins in Pennsylvania and details on EPA’s methodology for selecting them can be found here.
The primary purpose of the PA-MEB program is to maximize cost-effective reductions of agricultural nitrogen loads through the implementation of eligible agricultural conservation practices in Pennsylvania’s most effective basins, consistent with the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and Pennsylvania’s Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP). In addition, NFWF will prioritize funding for proposals that can yield rapid implementation outcomes (with consideration for design, engineering, and construction needs) and those that provide additional conservation and farm management co-benefits beyond water quality improvement.
Eligible Practices and Technical Assistance
EPA and NFWF have identified the following eligible practices for the PA-MEB program, based on the demonstrated ability of these practices to yield relatively low-cost reductions in agricultural nitrogen loading. Notably, these eligible practices include both annual (i.e., “management”) practices that require ongoing implementation to yield creditable load reduction benefits in future years, as well as structural (i.e., “engineered”) practices that, once implemented, generate multiple years of creditable load reductions based on their continued performance on the landscape.
|• Tillage Management||• Retirement of Highly Erodible Land|
|• Tree Planting||• Cover Crops –Traditional|
|• Wetland Restoration||• Cover Crops – Commodity|
|• Prescribed Grazing||• Forest and Grass Buffers|
|• Animal Waste Management Systems||• Forest and Grass Buffers with Stream Exclusion Fencing|
|• Manure Incorporation||• Core Nutrient Management -- Nitrogen|
|• Manure Injection||• Supplemental Nutrient Management – N Rate|
|• Manure Transport||• Supplemental Nutrient Management – N Placement|
|• Barnyard Runoff Control||• Supplemental Nutrient Management – N Timing|
|• Loafing Lot Management||• Soil and Water Conservation Plan|
|• Alternative Crops|
Additional information on each practice, including associated definitions and other common practice names, can be found in Appendix A. Further information on each practice, relevant qualifying conditions, and crediting methods is available through CBP’s “Quick Reference Guide for Best Management Practices” and established protocols approved by CBP’s BMP expert panels.
Technical assistance costs associated with conservation planning, the design and engineering of eligible practices, and oversight and management of practice implementation are eligible costs under the program. However, technical assistance costs, including personnel, fringe, and subawards or subcontractors to technical assistance providers may not exceed 10% of the total funding request.
Priority #1 – Cost-Effectiveness for Agricultural Nitrogen Load Reductions
For the purposes of the PA-MEB program, cost-effectiveness for agricultural nitrogen load reduction is defined as the total project funding request divided by the total nitrogen load reduction potential of the proposed practice(s) to be implemented (i.e., $/lb N reduced). Total nitrogen load reduction potential further considers both the estimated annual nitrogen load reduction from the proposed practice(s) to be implemented, calculated in accordance with established methods approved by the Chesapeake Bay Program for crediting under the Chesapeake Bay TMDL, as well as the proposed timeframe for generating creditable load reduction benefits for proposed practice(s) in future years.
In determining proposed timeframe for generating creditable load reductions, NFWF will rely on both the default practice credit durations assigned by EPA and CBP, which specify the length of time specific practices generate creditable load reductions for TMDL purposes, as well as proposed approaches put forward by applicants to sustain implementation and performance of funded practices beyond these standard practice credit durations.
NFWF encourages applicants to actively seek and propose methods and approaches to sustain load reductions beyond standard practice credit durations. Selected examples include obtaining signed agreements with eligible landowners/operators to sustain implementation of annual practices (e.g., cover crops) for multi-year periods and/or maintain structural practices beyond their standard practice credit duration, or by incorporating new practice implementation and maintenance requirements with new or amended conservation or agricultural land preservation easements. Any proposal seeking to obtain credit for load reductions beyond the standard practice credit must include associated conditions, roles, and responsibilities in the Operations, Maintenance, and Repair Plan attachment to Landowner-Grantee Agreements.
Applicants may further propose to bundle implementation of multiple practices across multiple operations and/or landowners. However, the total nitrogen load reduction potential will be calculated for each practice individually and summed to obtain a single total nitrogen load reduction potential value for the proposal. Signed Landowner-Grantee Agreements must also be provided for all proposed cooperating landowners/operators.
PA-MEB Program Metrics
To ensure consistency in estimating total load reduction potential across proposals and fairness in evaluating competing proposals, NFWF is requiring all applicants to utilize the FieldDoc platform to document proposed practices for implementation. FieldDoc will then calculate estimated load reduction potential for each practice and for each overall proposal using established methods approved by the Chesapeake Bay Program for crediting under the Chesapeake Bay TMDL. NFWF will entertain Applicants seeking to use other CBP-approved tools or methods to calculate load reduction potential must contact NFWF in advance of proposal submission and obtain prior written approval from NFWF in order for associated proposals to be considered.
Priority #2 – Readiness to Proceed
Given approaching 2025 goals for the Chesapeake Bay TMDL, NFWF is seeking projects for the PA-MEB program that can move quickly into implementation and delivery of load reduction benefits following award. Accordingly, NFWF will consider the status of necessary planning, design, and permitting required to proceed with implementation. As a result, while technical assistance costs associated with planning, design, and construction of eligible practices are allowable under the PA-MEB program, the most competitive proposals will minimize technical assistance and administrative costs and maximize funding for implementation and associated load reduction outcomes.
Priority #3 – Conservation and Farm Management Co-Benefits
While the PA-MEB program prioritizes cost-effective agricultural nitrogen load reductions consistent with the Chesapeake Bay TMDL and the water quality goals of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement, NFWF and program partners are seeking proposals that can also benefit other goals and outcomes of the Watershed Agreement and NFWF’s Chesapeake Bay Business Plan. Additional resources on the multiple benefits of nutrient and sediment best management practices, developed by CBP in support of Phase III WIP planning, can be found here.
In addition to co-benefits for regional ecosystem restoration efforts, NFWF is seeking proposals that deliver operational and/or financial benefits for eligible landowners/operators. Applicants will be asked to describe these benefits for proposed cooperating landowners/operators. Selected examples include reducing operating costs, simplifying or streamlining farm management processes, and increasing revenues from agricultural and non-agricultural products and services generated by cooperating landowners/operators.
To better gauge progress on individual grants and to ensure greater consistency of project data provided by multiple grants, NFWF has provided a list of metrics in Easygrants for grantees to choose from for reporting. For the PA-MEB program, applicants and awardees will be required to report both project-level metrics via Easygrants and more detailed site and practice-level data via FieldDoc.org (see below for additional details).
The following is a complete list of applicable metrics. It is in the applicant’s best interest to be selective of the most relevant metrics that are well-aligned with the proposed project’s objectives and outcomes. If you do not believe an applicable metric has been provided, please contact Nicole Thompson at email@example.com or (202) 857-0166, to discuss acceptable alternatives.

FUNDING AVAILABILITY AND MATCH
NFWF will award up to $12 million in grants through the PA-MEB program in 2022 through awards of up to $1,000,000. Multiple proposals may be submitted that benefit a single landowner/operator, but each proposal will be evaluated independently. Similarly, proposals may be submitted that provide benefits for multiple landowner/operators. However, total technical assistance and implementation funding will be capped at $450,000 per landowner/operator. Given program priorities for rapid implementation outcomes, NFWF generally expects awarded projects to be completed within 18-24 months. All proposed projects must begin on or after September 1, 2022 to facilitate necessary grant contracting and quality assurance activities.
Match is encouraged but not required for the PA-MEB program. However, proposals that can effectively leverage multiple funding sources to support implementation will be viewed favorably. Applicants will be encouraged, but not required, to document leveraged federal, state, local, or private funding supporting implementation of proposed practices.
All proposals will be screened for relevance, accuracy, completeness, and compliance with NFWF and funding source policies. Each proposal will then be evaluated based on the extent to which it meets the following criteria for the PA-MEB program. Underlined criteria are considered the primary evaluation criteria for the program.
- Total Agricultural Nitrogen Load Reduction Potential: Proposal contributes meaningful agricultural nitrogen load reduction outcomes in support of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL, Pennsylvania’s Phase III WIP and, as applicable, associated Countywide Action Plans.
- Conservation and Farm Management Co-Benefits: Proposed implementation actions yield clear and meaningful co-benefits for regional ecosystem conservation and restoration goals and farm management outcomes.
- Cost-Effectiveness for Agricultural Nitrogen Load Reduction: Proposals that demonstrate the greatest cost-effectiveness for agricultural nitrogen load reductions (i.e., $/lb. N reduced) will generally be the most competitive proposals.
- The quality and level of detail in the budget notes and budget narrative provide a clear and detailed understanding of the proposed funding request.
- Proposed costs are reasonable based on the work plan, local or regional costs for similar activities, and commensurate with project outcomes.
- If proposed work is partnership based, a clear indication of funding for project partners, stakeholders, and community members, is evident.
- Proposed funding request is well leveraged by the partners and other contributors through cash-, in-kind, and other match.
- The federal government has determined that a de minimis 10% indirect rate is an acceptable minimum for organizations without a NICRA. As such, NFWF reserves the right to scrutinize ALL proposals with indirect rates above 10% for cost-effectiveness.
- Readiness: Considering the status of necessary planning, design, and permitting and proposed implementation timeline, projects demonstrate a readiness to rapidly proceed to practice implementation.
- Proposal provides specific goals that correlate with a clear, logical and achievable work plan, milestones, and timeline.
- Proposed project team has the core competencies necessary to implement the proposed activities and achieve the proposed outcomes as well as the commitment to engage technical experts necessary to ensure activities are scientifically and technically sound and feasible.
- Proposal demonstrates an understanding of necessary permitting and environmental compliance requirements and the ability to obtain necessary approvals consistent with the proposed work plan and timeline.
- Applicant organization has demonstrated an ability to manage and implement similar projects on time and within budget.
Quality Assurance – If a project involves monitoring, data collection or data use, grantees will be asked to prepare and submit quality assurance documentation. This includes any data collection activities described in the proposal as provided by match and partner activities. Examples of data collection or use which requires a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP):
- New data collection.
- Existing data use (a new use for data collected for a different purpose, whether by the same or different groups).
- Data collection and analysis associated with development or design of plans and projects e.g. fish passage, watershed or water quality/habitat restoration project plans etc.
- Water or other environmental monitoring.
- Model development or use etc.
- Citizen or community based scientific data collection, monitoring etc.
Applicants must budget time and resources in their CBSF proposal to complete this task. No data collection or use may begin until a QAPP is approved and on file. Reimbursement for project activities, including non-data collection activities, may be delayed until quality assurance compliance requirements are complete. Plan to submit the draft QAPP to NFWF at least three months in advance of starting your data driven activity for review and comment. The timeline for receiving review feedback and comments and subsequent submittal for EPA approval is dependent upon the quality of the draft QAPP submission and may involve several iterations. General assistance will be available to grantees to help with scoping and review of the draft QAPPs. For more information, follow the link to EPA QA and CBSF Quality Assurance Project Plan Guidance. Please contact Stephanie Heidbreder (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about whether your project would require a QAPP. Applicants interested in details of NFWF’s quality assurance approach can visit our “Tools for Current Grantees” webpage in early March 2022 for revised QAPP templates and recorded training and educational webinars.
Nutrient and Sediment Load Reductions – As noted above, NFWF is requiring all applicants to utilize the FieldDoc platform to document proposed practices for implementation. When setting up proposed projects in FieldDoc, please be sure to list your application’s 5-digit Easygrants number in the FieldDoc project title.
Upon grant award, NFWF will require all projects submitted under this solicitation to utilize FieldDoc for tracking and reporting of applicable water quality improvement activities during the course of their grant project. For technical support on FieldDoc utilization during the proposal development process, please contact the Commons at email@example.com. Further help documentation can be found on our website.
Practice Specifications – Unless otherwise noted, all conservation and restoration practices implemented through the PA-MEB program must conform to established and recognized standards and practices specifications (e.g., NRCS practice standards, state stormwater manuals and retrofit guidance, approved Chesapeake Bay Program BMP Expert Panel reports). Applicants must note where proposed practices will deviate from established standards and provide reasonable justification for why an alternative is necessary.
Landowner/Operator Agreements – Awardees must obtain signed agreements with all proposed landowners/operators prior to executing grant contracts with NFWF. These agreements must identify whether the landowner/operator is the owner of the property or a tenant, secure appropriate site access for completion and maintenance of the project, and include provisions for refund of program funding to the awardee if the landowner/operator destroys or modifies the practices beyond regular maintenance and needed repairs. Agreements should also include an Operation, Maintenance and Repair Plan (see Appendix B). These agreements should further extend the duration of the longest practice credit duration among implemented practices on the property (see Appendix A).
Applicant Demographic Information – In an effort to better understand diversity in our grantmaking, NFWF is collecting basic information on applicants and their communities via a voluntary survey form (available in Easygrants). This information will not be shared externally or with reviewers. For more details, please see the tip sheet and the Uploads section of Easygrants.
Partnership and Community Impact – The applicant organization partners and engages collaboratively with diverse local community members, leaders, community-based organizations, and other relevant stakeholders to develop and implement the proposed project. This ensures long-term sustainability and success of the project, integration into local programs and policies, and community acceptance of proposed restoration actions. Non-traditional partners or communities are enlisted to broaden the sustained impact from the project. Describe the community characteristics of the project area, identify any communities impacted, describe outreach and community engagement activities and how those will be monitored and measured. Use demographic data to support descriptions and submit letters of support from community partners and/or collaborators demonstrating their commitment to the project and engagement in project activities as proposed.
Monitoring – NFWF may implement independent monitoring efforts in the future to measure the environmental outcomes from projects funded under this solicitation. Award recipients may be asked to facilitate granting of access to project sites for NFWF or its designees for future environmental monitoring purposes.
Budget – Costs are allowable, reasonable and budgeted in accordance with NFWF’s Budget Instructions cost categories. This funding opportunity will award grants of federal financial assistance funds; applicants must be able to comply with the OMB Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200). While for-profit entities are eligible applicants, charges to a potential award may include actual costs only; recipients may not apply loaded rates or realize profit from an award of federal financial assistance funds.
Matching Contributions – Matching Contributions consist of cash, contributed goods and services, volunteer hours, and/or property raised and spent for the Project during the Period of Performance. Larger match ratios and matching fund contributions from a diversity of partners are encouraged and will be more competitive during application review.
Procurement – If the applicant chooses to specifically identify proposed Contractor(s) for Services, an award by NFWF to the applicant does not constitute NFWF’s express written authorization for the applicant to procure such specific services noncompetitively. When procuring goods and services, NFWF recipients must follow documented procurement procedures which reflect applicable laws and regulations.
Publicity and Acknowledgement of Support – Award recipients will be required to grant NFWF the right and authority to publicize the project and NFWF’s financial support for the grant in press releases, publications and other public communications. Recipients will also be asked by NFWF to provide high-resolution (minimum 300 dpi) photographs depicting the project.
Receiving Award Funds – Award payments are primarily reimbursable. Projects may request funds for reimbursement at any time after completing a signed agreement with NFWF. A request of an advance of funds must be due to an imminent need of expenditure and must detail how the funds will be used and provide justification and a timeline for expected disbursement of these funds.
Compliance Requirements – Projects selected may be subject to requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act (state and federal), and National Historic Preservation Act. Documentation of compliance with these regulations must be approved prior to initiating activities that disturb or alter habitat or other features of the project site(s). Applicants should budget time and resources to obtain the needed approvals. As may be applicable, successful applicants may be required to comply with additional Federal, state, or local requirements and obtain all necessary permits and clearances.
Permits – Successful applicants will be required to provide sufficient documentation that the project expects to receive or has received all necessary permits and clearances to comply with any Federal, state or local requirements. Where projects involve work in the waters of the United States, NFWF strongly encourages applicants to conduct a permit pre-application meeting with the Army Corps of Engineers prior to submitting their proposal. In some cases, if a permit pre-application meeting has not been completed, NFWF may require successful applicants to complete such a meeting prior to grant award.
Federal Funding – The availability of federal funds estimated in this solicitation is contingent upon the federal appropriations process. Funding decisions will be made based on level of funding and timing of when it is received by NFWF.
Dates of activities are subject to change and contingent on the availability of funding. Please check the Program page of the NFWF website for the most current dates and information (http://www.nfwf.org/chesapeake).
