A century ago, the average American used only about 10 gallons of water a day to drink, cook, clean, and bathe. Today, Americans use 100 gallons a day per person on average, causing stresses on our sources of drinking water. Along with that stress on the drinking water comes a burden on the wastewater systems. It’s not surprising that we often get requests from municipalities for help finding water and wastewater grants. Below is a list of hand-picked grants.
Municipal water and wastewater projects are vital to the health and well being of a town and its residents. These projects also tend to be the most expensive developments for municipalities. As budgets shrink, municipalities are forced to look elsewhere for financial support, and grant programs are a common way to help offset the costs of water and wastewater projects. In this blog, we detail six select grant programs, most aimed toward small and rural towns, designed to help municipalities with their water and wastewater projects and training. There are, of course, many more.
