Eligibility Expanded for Water Infrastructure Grants with $175 Million Now Available in Round 2
Application Deadline Extended to June 20, 2016
The enacted state budget provided an additional $100 million this year in grants, for a total of $175 million in Round 2, so EFC can now broaden eligibility for wastewater projects and provide a total of $175 million in grants through this current round. In addition, the maximum grant amount for drinking water projects has been increased from $2 million to $3 million or 60% of eligible projects costs, whichever is less. To accommodate this expansion, the Round 2 application deadline for the NYS Water Grants program has been extended from April 15, 2016 to until June 20, 2016.
Applications must be submitted via e-mail to NYSWaterGrants@efc.ny.gov or via the NYS Water Grants Dropbox no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 20, 2016.
