Guidance for Writing Project Implementation Plans


Applicants who are selected to receive Nonpoint Source Funding through the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) Section 319 program will receive an award letter. Prior to starting the project and claiming reimbursements, the project sponsor will need to complete a detailed Project Implementation Plan (PIP). This document provides guidance on how to complete the PIP, and the information which should be included.

What is a Project Implementation Plan (PIP)?
The Project Implementation Plan or ‘PIP’ is an outline of the work, goals, and expected outcomes of a nonpoint source project awarded through NDEQ. Project sponsors should be able to take their Section 319 application and turn it into a PIP.
