Funding Announcement – $325 Million in WIIA / IMG Grants in 2024

Applications went live this week for the next round $325 million in WIIA/IMG funding to assist municipalities in developing and implementing clean water infrastructure projects.

With applications due June 14th, 2024 – the time to prepare your community for funding success is now. A competitive application is built on a strong project that is developed from the outset to meet both the needs of your community and the priorities of the funding agency. Preparing a competitive application for your community may require:

  • Engineering report development
  • Environmental review (SEQRA)
  • Financing plan and bond resolution
  • District formation
