Improving Your Community’s Water Infrastructure: Opportunities for Federal Support

Time: 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm

Date: March 14, 2022

Location: Liberty Salons IJK

Description

• Learn about the federal opportunities available to improve the drinking water, wastewater and stormwater systems in your community.
• Engage with federal and state officials about the process and timeline for accessing funds.
• Hear how other communities are investing in green infrastructure, lead pipe replacement, and other projects to improve the sustainability and resilience of water systems.

Under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, nearly $50 billion in federal funding will flow from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to states for clean water and drinking water infrastructure projects. In addition to the traditional uses for dollars from EPA’s Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes dedicated funding for lead pipe replacement and projects addressing the class of chemicals known as PFAS, as well as other “emerging contaminants.” In this session, participants will learn about these new opportunities from federal agency staff and state partners, as well as how your city, town or village can submit a successful application.
