Water Reclamation and Reuse Research Projects

Current Closing Date for Applications: Oct 07, 2020 

Agency Name: Bureau of Reclamation


The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite research sponsors to submit proposals to cost-share Title XVI Research activities that seek to address water supply challenges by establishing or expanding the use of water reclamation and reuse, improving existing water reuse facilities, and/or streamlining the implementation of state-of-the-art technology for new facilities.

Water reclamation and reuse research helps states, tribes, and local communities tackle water supply challenges. For purposes of the Title XVI Program, a water reclamation and reuse project is a project that reclaims and reuses municipal, industrial, domestic, or agricultural wastewater or impaired groundwater or surface waters. Research funded under the Title XVI Program (Title XVI Research) supports the development of water reclamation and reuse projects to supplement urban and irrigation water supplies through water reuse, thereby improving efficiency, providing flexibility during water shortages, and diversifying the water supply. Water reclamation and reuse projects provide growing communities with new sources of clean water which increases water management flexibility and makes our water supply more reliable.

The Federal share (Reclamation’s share plus any other sources of Federal funding) of any one proposed research study shall not exceed 25 percent of the total research study cost.
