Application Period for the Small Water Systems Regionalization Grant Program
[31 Pa.B. 1286]
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announces the opening of the application period for funding the Small Water Systems Regionalization Grant Program. This program provides grants to eligible applicants to assess the feasibility of merging water systems. The proposed regionalized water system must involve at least one small community water system (a system serving 3,300 or fewer people).
Eligible applicants include any community water supplier, county, township, borough or authority whose jurisdiction includes the geographic territory of the proposed regionalized water system, and to which a small water system has issued a letter of intent to develop a water systems regionalization study.
Grant awards are limited to 75% of all approved project costs related to the water systems regionalization study or $ 75,000, whichever is less. The grantee must provide local share in the form of matching funds or in-kind services at a minimum of 25% of the total project costs.
The application period runs from March 1 through April 30, 2001. Based on the availability of funding, applicants that submit a final work plan and budget, which are approved by DEP, will be given preference to receive a grant based on a first-come-first-served basis.
Parties interested in submitting an application are encouraged to meet with DEP staff to discuss the application and the grant process. The meeting should prove helpful in completing an application.
To arrange a meeting or to obtain a grant application, contact Keith Ashley, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Water Supply Management, Division of Technical Assistance and Outreach, Technical Assistance Center for Small Water Systems, P. O. Box 8467, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8467, (717) 787-0122 or e-mail email@example.com.
