The Water Infrastructure Improvement Grant Application
The Water Infrastructure Improvement Grant Application consists of the submission of this MS Excel workbook and supporting documents. All water infrastructure grant requests are to be included in this one application. Based on the proposed scope of work, a School Facilities Project Application to the NJDOE's Office of School Facilities may also be required.
Pursuant to the Securing Our Children’s Future Bond Act, L. 2018, c. 119, public school districts can apply for grant funding for eligible work to remediate water contamination, as determined by water testing conducted in accordance with the NJDOE’s or Safe Drinking Water Act regulations, in district school buildings serving any combination of grades kindergarten through twelve. Eligible work may include upgrades to drinking water outlets, the installation of automated flushing systems, lead service line replacements, and improvements to well water systems as identified in N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-3.2. Districts may request funding to remediate any level of contamination, but if grant applications for eligible projects exceed available funding, grants will be competitively awarded based primarily on the type of and level of contamination in accordance with the Bond Act regulations.
Carefully review the Water Infrastructure Improvement Grant Guidelines and Securing Our Children's Future Bond Act and regulations to ensure grant eligibility and application requirements are addressed. Links to these documents and other useful information are provided below.
