The Clean Water Fund Financial Assistance for Municipal Projects

The Clean Water Fund is the mechanism through which CT DEEP provides financial assistance to municipalities for projects addressing wastewater needs.

Due to resource constraints, municipalities should allocate a minimum of 90 calendar days from the date of submission to CT DEEP for the review and comment or approval of any document submitted related to the Clean Water Fund.  These documents may include, but are not limited to, funding applications, engineering reports, plans and specifications, and professional services contracts.

Implementation or execution of such documents without prior written approval by CT DEEP will result in loss of funding eligibility for the subject of the document.
