The Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Capital Bond Plan for 2018 includes $400,000.00 for water infrastructure assessment and planning grants.
MassDEP anticipates that the preparation of these plans will assist grant recipients in meeting Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Federal Clean Water Act requirements, as well as to prepare public utility systems for budgetary planning for regular evaluative assessments and replacement of water infrastructure system assets. Planning projects have to be complementary to existing infrastructure, not for new infrastructure.
Due to the need to complete the proposed work by May 30, 2018, public entities will be required to conform to a short time frame for project completion.
The Request for Proposals: Water Infrastructure and Planning Grants document contains a schedule for each step of the application process.
