Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grant
Governor Cuomo Announces Engineering Planning Grants:
In 2011, Governor Cuomo launched the Regional Economic Development Councils and the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) to provide each region with the tools to create and implement their own roadmap for economic prosperity and job creation. This community-based model uses local assets to drive local economic growth and has resulted in unprecedented partnerships and collaboration that are building a reinvigorated economy.
After four successful rounds, the 2015 CFA made $750 million in economic development resources available from over thirty programs across thirteen state agencies.
As part of Round 5 of the REDC initiative, EFC and DEC are proud to have contributed $2 million to 31 communities through the Wastewater Infrastructure Engineering Planning Grants Program.

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 or other financial means to further pursue the identified solution.
