Village Water and Wastewater Initiative

autumn leaf on waterA Program through the Department of Environmental Conservation:

The Village Water and Wastewater Initiative is designed to provide wastewater disposal systems to villages in need. Grant funding through this program will help municipalities develop new public drinking water systems and community wastewater disposal systems to bridge the affordability gap, protect public health, increase affordable housing, and support economic development. The funding will support decentralized community wastewater disposal systems and/or public municipal water systems. Designated villages and neighborhoods, as ranked by the Priority System of the relevant Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds Intended Use Plan (IUP), are eligible for funding. While this program has passed, municipalities are encouraged to apply for financial support should additional funding become available.
