The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced a $ 1.9 billion grant from the State Revolving Fund (SRF) to accelerate progress in water infrastructure projects. Together with the historic investments of the bipartisan infrastructure law, these grants will help states, tribes and territories improve water infrastructure to provide safe drinking water, protect vital water resources and create thousands of new jobs in communities across the country.
In 2022, the EPA will provide approximately $ 3.2 billion to SRFs for clean water, including $ 1.2 billion in new basic federal funding announced today and $ 2 billion through the bipartisan infrastructure law. This total investment represents a nearly doubling of the annual investment in Clean Water SRF to support a wide range of water infrastructure projects, including modernization of wastewater infrastructure, implementation of water reuse and recycling. and rainwater management. Over $ 47 million in direct grants are available to the Tribes, some US territories and the District of Columbia for infrastructure projects.
The EPA is also providing $ 6.4 billion to SRFs for drinking water, including $ 728 million in new basic federal funding announced today and $ 5.7 billion through the bipartisan infrastructure law. This total investment represents a six-fold increase in annual investment to help drinking water systems remove lead service lines, install contaminant treatments, and improve the system's resilience to natural disasters such as floods. Over $ 32 million in direct grants are available to tribes, some territories in the United States and the District of Columbia to upgrade drinking water systems.
