news item image
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of $2.7 billion (€2.3 billion) for State Revolving Funds (SRFs) to assist states and territories with infrastructure projects that help provide safe drinking water and protect surface waters in communities.
Additionally, EPA is announcing a new $12 million (€10 million) grant programme to help wastewater utilities that serve small, rural and tribal communities.
These investments in water infrastructure underscore this year’s World Water Day theme, the value of water, and demonstrate the EPA’s commitment to building back better while helping support vital water services where they are most needed.
“EPA is committed to partnering with states, tribes, and territories to invest in infrastructure projects and protect surface waters in communities across the United States, ensuring that all Americans, especially those living in underserved communities, have access to safe and clean water and opportunities for economic growth,” said EPA Administrator Michael Regan. “On World Water Day, we are proud to help support improved water infrastructure across America through our SRF programs and technical assistance grants.”
