Water Pollution Control State Revolving Fund Loan Program
Small Community Wastewater Facilities Grants


This is a grant program to assist small communities in the planning, designing, and constructing of wastewater management facilities.  An eligible small community must be an incorporated municipality, have a total population and a service area population of 10,000 or less, and have a per capita income (PCI) less than the State of Florida average PCI of $26,503.  Projects shall compete separately for Preconstruction planning Grants and Construction and design Grants.  Projects must be associated with wastewater collection, transmission, treatment, or disposal facilities. This includes facilities to reuse reclaimed water from wastewater treatment plants. Stormwater projects are not eligible. The highest priority is given to projects that address the most serious risks to public health, are necessary to achieve compliance, or assist systems most in need based on an affordability index.  A partial match of local funds will be required.  Funding of the local match may be obtained through the State Revolving Fund Program.

Information on the grant program is available in the Small Community Wastewater Facilities Grants Brochure or in the Florida Administrative Code under  Rule Chapter 62-505.  Anyone interested in applying for a grant should complete and submit form 62-505.900(1), Request for Inclusion (Word version or PDF version).
