Funding Opportunity for Fluoride Equipment Projects

January 20, 2017

Are you or someone you know looking to replace, upgrade, or install fluoridation equipment?

If so, there is an opportunity to team up with a national association and a federal agency to assist with your project.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have collaborated to provide assistance to public water systems to replace aging water fluoridation equipment or implement new equipment for adding fluoride to the water. Awards are expected to range from $2,000 to $35,000 until all available funds is dispersed.

To learn more about the application process and the qualifications, you can participate in a conference call with NACCHO and CDC staff on January 24, 2017 at 1:00 PM EST.

Applications are due March 1, 2017.

For application assistance, contact Dan Sorek, PE at or (616) 218–2940.
