Applications for the County Water Supply Planning Grant Program
[29 Pa.B. 67]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) announces the opening of the application period for funding of the County Water Supply Planning Grant Program. This grant program is available to any county to develop a comprehensive county water supply plan.
The goal of this incentive grant program is to protect the public from the hazards of unsafe drinking water and assure safe and reliable water service to the citizens of the Commonwealth. County water supply planning can insure development of water supply systems in an efficient, cost-effective manner and promote early recognition of viability concerns by reaching developers, local officials and other key participants at an early stage of water system development.
This incentive grant program is funded from the Department's Safe Drinking Water Account under the authority of the Pennsylvania Safe Drinking Water Act (35 P. S. §§ 721.1--721.17) and section 1905-A(a) of The Administrative Code of 1929. This grant program will provide money to eligible applicants for the preparation of a county water supply plan or updating an existing plan.
Grant awards are limited to 80% of all Department approved project costs or $100,000, whichever is less. The grantee must provide local share in the form of matching funds or in-kind services at a minimum of 20% of the total project costs.
The application period runs from January 4, 1999, to January 29, 1999. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis based on complete applications which best meet the criteria contained in the grant guidelines established by the Department.
