    MONTPELIER — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife says it’s not too late to apply for 2014 watershed protection grants.

    Rick Hopkins of the Department of Environmental Conservation says the grants can be awarded for projects that include the protection or restoration of water quality, shorelines or fish and wildlife habitats.

    The grants are available to municipalities, local or regional governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations and water-related citizen groups. For 2014, $100,000 is available.

    The Watershed Grants Program is run by Fish and Wildlife and Environmental Conservation. It’s funded through sales of Vermont conservation license plates.

    Since 1998 the program has funded almost 320 projects.
