Grants for Wastewater Facility Planning

Grants for wastewater facility planning are available to assist municipal and county wastewater utilities in conducting wastewater facility planning, in beginning the process of updating plans that are older than five years, or in writing overall strategies for the development of the utility within a regional context. This program is intended to aid wastewater utilities in participating in statewide planning activities.

General wastewater facility plans that contain policies, statements, goals and planning components for extension of service, maintenance and upgrades of existing and future facilities for a portion of a community or service area or for technical plans for upgrading or expanding collection, transmission, treatment, disposal, and/or residuals management facilities may receive up to a 50 percent match to a limit of $12,000.

Long range wastewater facility plans that contain policies, statements, goals and planning components for extension of service, maintenance and upgrades of existing and future facilities for an individual community or service area are eligible to receive up to a 50 percent match to a limit of $20,000.

Regional wastewater facility plans that contain policies, statements, goals and planning components for extension of service, maintenance and upgrades of existing and future facilities for multiple communities or service areas may receive up to a 50 percent match to a limit of $100,000.

An application for a wastewater facility planning grant must include:

  • Information showing the wastewater utilities name, mailing address and phone numbers
  • The type of grant application
  • A summary of the project cost and who will do the work
  • A scope of work for the development of the plan
  • A resolution from the wastewater utility approving the planning project and grant request
  • A letter to the regional wastewater utility advising them of the development of the plan.

The program guidance for Wastewater Facility Planning Grants Guidelines and Application is available upon request. For additional information, please contact:
