Frequent Questions

B06: Is this grant just for training or more than that? Would this grant help us with repairs/replacement to existing lines? Is there another choice that would be better?

This funding opportunity is designed to provide funding for eligible non-profit organizations (as described in Section III.A. of the announcement, quoted below). These organizations in turn will provide training and technical assistance to eligible drinking water and wastewater systems and private well owners. Successful grant applicants will provide the training and technical assistance using their own personnel, contracting with other individuals or organizations, or through some other approved mechanism. State, tribal and municipal government entities are not eligible for receiving funding under this announcement. As a result, repairs or replacement of existing water lines would not be eligible for funding under this announcement. The funding announcement covers training and technical assistance activities only.
[Section III.A. of the Request for Proposals states: “Eligible applicants under this competition are nonprofit organizations, nonprofit private universities and colleges, and public institutions of higher education. For-profit organizations are not eligible to apply.... Nonprofit organizations described in Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code that engage in lobbying activities as defined in Section 3 of the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 are not eligible to apply.”]
