State Water Grants

Water Infrastructure Improvement & Intermunicipal Grants
About These Grants
WIIA provides competitive grants to help municipalities fund water quality infrastructure projects. WIIA grants are available for wastewater and drinking water projects that protect or improve water quality and/or protect public health. Municipalities may submit applications for multiple projects, including wastewater, sewer and drinking water projects.

IMG is available for both drinking water and wastewater/sewer (clean water) projects that serve multiple municipalities, such as a shared water quality infrastructure project or the interconnection of multiple municipal water systems.
