Gov. Kathy Hochul has announced more than $115 million for critical clean and drinking water infrastructure projects across the state that protect or improve water quality.
The grants, interest-free loans and low-interest loans approved by the EFC board of directors on Dec. 9, 2021, will help 34 municipalities and public authorities undertake drinking water and wastewater projects.
Of the funding announced, more than $33 million is allocated to 13 drinking water projects in Nassau and Suffolk counties to address emerging contaminants.
The board’s approvals include IMG and WIIA grants and financings through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF).
