Grants for Small Water, Sewer and Storm Water Infrastructure Projects Available

As part of the 2022-23 state budget, the General Assembly appropriated $105.6 million of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to the PA Small Water and Sewer Program, which is now accepting grant funding applications through the Department of Community and Economic Development.

The program seeks to assist with the construction, improvement, expansion, rehabilitation or repair of a water supply system, sanitary sewer system or storm water system.

Municipalities and municipal authorities are eligible to apply for funding for projects which have a total cost of not less than $30,000 and not more than $500,000. An eligible applicant must provide matching funds of not less than 15% of the total eligible project cost. The cash match may come from any other funding source including PENNVEST.

Applications will be accepted from Oct. 1, 2022, through Dec. 21, 2022. All applications and required supplemental information must be received by Dec. 21, 2022
