EFC’s Water Infrastructure Improvement Act (WIIA) Grants: EFC is providing $400 million in competitive grants for projects that fund water quality infrastructure for wastewater and drinking water projects that protect or improve water quality and public health. Municipalities may submit applications for multiple projects, including wastewater, sewer and drinking water projects.
Intermunicipal Water Grant (IMG) Program: EFC provides grants to assist municipalities that are working together on water quality infrastructure projects. Grants are available for both drinking water and sewage treatment works, also referred to as clean water projects that serve multiple municipalities, such as a shared water quality infrastructure project or the interconnection of multiple municipal water systems.
