The Water Recycling Funding Program provides grants to assist public agencies with the construction of pilot projects for new potable reuse. The applicant must demonstrate that the pilot project will develop new information that does not currently exist and increase the body of knowledge regarding technologies that help the understanding of how potable reuse can effectively be achieved through the innovative application of current and new technologies.
Eligible pilot projects may receive grant funds in the amount of up to 35% of actual eligible pilot study construction costs incurred up to a maximum of $1 million.
The WRFP has $3.75 million in grants available for award.
