Program Overview


Water Infrastructure Emergency Financial Assistance

The Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017 provides up to $10 million for expedited financial assistance to municipalities for wastewater and drinking water infrastructure emergencies where the condition of the infrastructure is causing or could reasonably be expected to cause an imminent hazard to the public health or welfare, or to the environment. The amount of financial assistance, which is a loan provided to the municipality, is based on the reasonable costs immediately necessary to address the emergency.
