The New York State Water Infrastructure Improvement Act provides $200 million in grant funding over three
fiscal years, with $50 million in the first year and $75 million each year for the last two years.
$30 million will be available for wastewater infrastructure projects and $20 million will be available for
drinking water projects, which will be administered by the state Environmental Facilities Corporation,
the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the state Department of Health.
Applicants seeking grant funding for wastewater projects are eligible to receive grants of either
25 percent of eligible project costs or $5 million, whichever is less.
Applications for both wastewater and drinking water projects are now available and due by
September 4, 2015. More information on the grant program and applications is available here.
