The Indiana State Department of Agriculture and the State Soil Conservation Board have awarded grants to 92 soil and water conservation districts throughout Indiana. More than $900,000 has been distributed through the Clean Water Indiana program. The SSCB provides an annual match of up to $10,000 to SWCDs that receive funding from a local governmental entity. A new law signed by Governor Pence allows SWCDs merge and share resources by increasing the state’s matching grant based on the number of merging districts. The law goes into effect July 1. http://in.gov/isda/2379.htm
