How to apply...
Application must be submitted through the State water pollution control agency to the appropriate EPA Regional Office. This program is excluded from coverage under OMB Circular No. A-110.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Projects considered for award must be approved by the State water pollution control agency and also certified by such agency as to priority over any other eligible projects. Award is made following such certification and approval by a Regional Office of EPA. Funds authorized by the Congress are allotted to the States in accordance with The Clean Water Act, as amended. Grant awards within individual States are limited by the funds which have been allotted to such States.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
