Grants to New Hampshire nonprofit and for-profit organizations, conservation groups, government agencies, water providers, and land trusts for water protection and land preservation projects. Applicants must submit an eligibility form prior to the submission of a full application. Funding is intended for programs that promote source water protection and protect the state's water supplies.

The purpose of the grant program is to protect existing public water supply sources, prepare for growth and development of new water supply infrastructure, and preserve natural infrastructure that will provide existing and future New Hampshire water users with safe, reliable supplies of water. 

Eligible projects include permanent protection of undeveloped water supply land, including wellhead protection areas, hydrologic areas of concern, and land that is likely to benefit future public water supply sources.
