The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced over $26.2 million (€24.6 million) to Oregon from President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law through this year’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).
The funding will support Oregon communities in upgrading essential water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure that protects public health and treasured water bodies. Nearly half of this funding will be available as grants or principal forgiveness loans helping underserved communities across America invest in water infrastructure, while creating good-paying jobs.
“The unprecedented investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law are what our communities and our environment need,” said EPA Region 10 Administrator Casey Sixkiller. “This infusion of funds will help rebuild Oregon’s aging water and wastewater infrastructure, and will expand access to clean, safe water to communities that have too long been underserved.
"I encourage Oregon communities to apply for these grants and seize this unique opportunity.”
The announcement is part of the $2.4 billion (€2.2 billion) announced as part of the second wave of funding made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and builds on the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to invest in America.
In May 2022, EPA announced the initial allotment of $1.9 billion (€1.8 billion) from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to states, Tribes and territories through the CWSRF.
That money is supporting hundreds of critical water infrastructure projects around the country.
