Ohio launches new water infrastructure grant program
On July 30, Ohio officials announced the launch of a new grant program that will invest hundreds of millions of dollars in the future of water infrastructure across the state.
The Ohio Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Grant Program, which is part of Governor DeWine's initiative to strategically invest in Ohio's future, is open to public and non-public entities that operate water systems across the state, with emphasis placed on addressing the needs of economically disadvantaged communities.
“It is wrong that there are places in this state where clean water is not readily available, where sewage systems are crumbling, and where much-needed improvements are long overdue,” said Governor DeWine. “Working with our local leaders, we're going to invest in the Ohio communities that need significant infrastructure upgrades to ensure that they have access to clean, safe drinking water and reliable sewer infrastructure.”
