Applications will be considered for the following funding programs in the Spring 2024 funding round (this information is covered in the recorded training session above and in the provided PowerPoint presentation, and the informational one-pagers above):

Applications for drinking water and wastewater construction projects will be considered for funding from the Community Development Block Grant-Infrastructure program, the State Revolving Funds, including Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funds, the State Reserves, and the Viable Utility Reserve. Local government units and non-profit water/wastewater corporations (and investor-owned drinking water utilities for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund) may apply for funding.

  •           The Community Development Block Grant-Infrastructure (CDBG-I) program will provide grants to fund projects in areas that meet the U.S. Housing and Urban Development low-to-moderate income threshold (LMI). It is available to non-entitlement municipalities and counties and offers grants up to $3 million per applicant every three years.
  •           The State Revolving Funds (SRFs) will provide low-interest loans (including loans that may be partially forgiven) for drinking water and wastewater projects. In addition to the SRF funds typically available, this round will include the use of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funds, and BIL Lead Service Line Replacement funds. Eligible utilities may apply for up to $25 million in Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loans and up to $35 million in Clean Water State Revolving Fund loans. Limits vary for Emerging Contaminants and for Lead Service Line Replacement funding.
  •           State Reserve Program (SRP) construction projects: Grant and loan funding will be available for drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects. The latest information on funding availability and limits will be shared during application training. Eligible utilities may apply for up to $3 million every 3 years.


Applications for drinking water and wastewater planning projects will be considered for funding from the Viable Utility Reserve (VUR). VUR grants are available to local government units designated as distressed by the State Water Infrastructure Authority and Local Government Commission. Grant funding may be available for Asset Inventory and Assessment grants and Merger/Regionalization Feasibility grants.

Applications for stormwater construction projects will be considered for funding from the Local Assistance for Stormwater Infrastructure Investments (LASII) fund. Grant funding will be available to cities and counties, and regional Councils of Government and non-profit entities partnering with cities and counties, to improve or create infrastructure for controlling stormwater quantity and quality. Funding is offered only for stormwater construction projects. Funding is NOT offered for stormwater planning projects or to develop/implement a new stormwater utility. Stormwater construction grant limits up to $5 million per applicant or up to $7.5 million total if two or more units of local government are collaborating on one project are available.
