2024 Stormwater Local Assistance Fund Needs Survey

In 2019, the Stormwater Management Act (Code of Virginia § 62.1-44.15:24 et seq.) was amended to require the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to annually determine an estimate of the amount of Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (SLAF) matching grants expected to be requested by local governments for eligible projects related to planning, designing, and implementing stormwater best management practices.

As of April 16, the DEQ seeks local input to identify the future funding needs for SLAF eligible nutrient reduction projects in the Commonwealth. The DEQ has prepared a survey to solicit this input.  Linked here is the survey document to facilitate the gathering of project details prior to survey completion. Please open the survey link only when you are prepared to enter the information requested.

This survey intends to capture an estimate of the SLAF funding needed for local governments conducting stormwater projects in the near future. Linked here you will find a letter from DEQ Director, Mike Rolband, with additional details regarding the importance of this survey.

More information on the Stormwater Local Assistance Fund can be found in the procedural guidelines through the link below.
