Slight tweaks to Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (SLAF) introduced in the Senate

February 2, 2021

SB 1404 (Lewis) proposes a slight expansion of project eligibility for Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (SLAF) projects.  Specifically, the bill authorizes SLAF awarded for projects related to Chesapeake Bay total maximum daily load (TMDL) requirements to consider total phosphorus reductions or total nitrogen reductions.  Additionally, SB 1404 authorizes grants awarded for eligible projects in localities with high or above average fiscal stress (as reported by the Commission on Local Government) to account for more than 50 percent of the costs of a project.

SB 1404 has been referred to the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee, where it will be heard Tuesday afternoon (February 2).
