The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC), will offer a grant for municipalities that need to construct or improve their municipal wastewater system. The grant is to help municipalities pay 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.
Individual grants will be up to $30,000 and municipalities will have to provide a 20% match. 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.
