Who is eligible to apply...
Any municipality, intermunicipal agency, State, or interstate agency, or Federally-recognized Indian tribal government, having jurisdiction over waste disposal. At present, new funding for the Construction Grants Program exists only in the District of Columbia, Virgin Islands, and the outer Pacific Islands because these were provided exemption by the U.S. Congress from establishing State Revolving Fund (SRF). Grants are awarded to only these territories from the SRF funds, which are received as Title II grants. Funding requests for construction of wastewater treatment facilities are now to be made to the SRF representative of the State in which the construction is proposed. For certain competitive funding opportunities, the Agency may limit eligibility to a particular subset of eligible applicants consistent with the Agency's competition policy.

Application may be made for grant assistance for building and erection of the treatment works with an allowance for planning and design costs at the time that the grant for construction is made.
