The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in cooperation with the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation, offer grants for municipalities that need to construct or improve their municipal wastewater system. Grant funds can be used to pay for engineering and/or consultant fees for engineering and planning services for the production of an engineering report. Municipalities can apply for the funding through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA). Up to $2 million has been made available for this program in 2013.
Successful applicants will be required to submit a complete engineering report within 9 months of their grant agreement being executed. The engineering report will be used when seeking financing through the CWSRF program to further pursue the identified solution.
