Wastewater, Stormwater Planning Grants up to $2,000,000 Brewing in State Legislature

November 19, 2012

P&N is closely tracking HB 5673-5676 and SB 1155-1158, which we expect Governor Snyder to sign before 2012 ends. We participated in the committee that developed this concept, and we are in close contact with Legislators and regulators as the bills move through the adoption process. Grants up to $1,000,000 with 10% match, and $2,000,000 with a 25% match will be available for:

  • Developing stormwater and wastewater asset management plans.
  • Developing stormwater master plans.
  • Planning and designing wetland mitigation banks.

 

Details about these grants change daily, and once the bills pass, MDEQ will develop grant application guidelines. It may be six months or more before grants are available. Regardless, we see great potential for our clients to benefit. Prein&Newhof can help you to inventory and map your assets, develop cash flow schedules for major repairs and replacements, and help you find or create funding to keep your clean water infrastructure working at its lowest possible cost.

To learn the latest news about these grants and how they can help you, e-mail Jim Hegarty or call him at 616-364-8491 x 112.
