Up to $430 million for projects that address PFAS available

The Clean Water State Revolving Fund-Emerging Contaminants program is part of the national effort to ensure safe and clean water for all communities. Specifically, the program offers grants and vouchers for projects that that address contaminants such as per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in water systems.

The program has issued a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) amounting to $430 million, the program is poised to award an unlimited number of projects that meet specific criteria.

States are the initial recipients of this funding, which is then allocated to water utilities, municipal and other eligible entities. Tribes and territories also stand to benefit from a portion of these funds. The NOFO will accept applications through the end of April 2024.

Projects that have previously received funding include:

  • The Texas Water Development Board approved financial aid totaling $975,023 in principal forgiveness for the Arimak Water Supply Corporation. The funds will go toward a water system improvement project, including the installation of a radium reduction system and new ground storage tanks.
  • Liberty Hill, Texas, received $28.55 million, consisting of both financing and principal forgiveness, to develop a direct potable reuse project, which is expected to save the city approximately $5.1 million over the loan’s lifespan. This project will also include a new water treatment plant, leveraging treated effluent to meet the area’s growing potable water needs.​
