The Community Assistance (CA) unit helps communities throughout the state navigate the various program requirements and assists with identifying available financial assistance needed to plan and design water quality infrastructure projects. The goal of CA is to position a water quality infrastructure project so it is administratively and technically ready to advance towards construction and apply for available funding opportunities.
CA staff help community leaders understand application requirements and the types of financial assistance available. Also, CA staff maintain communication with other water quality infrastructure co-funding agencies, community leaders, retained professionals, regulatory agencies, and the general public to move water quality infrastructure projects forward responsibly that meets the water quality needs of the community. Most importantly, CA staff serve as a point of contact to answer any questions the community may have during project development.
CA staff is conveniently located in offices throughout the state, and are ready to provide communities with technical and programmatic assistance.
