Funding Opportunity- Town of East Hampton: Water Quality RFA Round 2 2020
Jun 22 @ 12:00 pm – Aug 20 @ 4:00 pm

TOWN OF EAST HAMPTON ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS FOR SECOND ROUND OF WATER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN 2020

Available: June 22, 2020
Due Date: August 20, 2020

Click here for the grant application and information.

The Town of East Hampton has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for grants for water quality improvement projects that may be eligible for funding through the Community Preservation Fund. According to state law, up to 20 percent of the town’s C.P.F. fund proceeds, which come from a two-percent tax on real estate transfers, may be used for water quality projects.
Through this program the Town is able to fund projects ranging from wastewater treatment improvement to abatement of pollutants from point and non-point sources, and aquatic habitat restoration. Applications will be considered twice a year by the town’s Water Quality Technical Advisory Committee.

Wastewater treatment upgrades and other projects on municipal, commercial, multi-family or high-density residences, and properties owned by not-for-profit entities, may be eligible. This program differs from the Town’s ongoing Septic Incentive Program, which provides grants to property owners for septic system upgrades, as it is designed to provide higher grant funding awards for large-scale projects that can have a significant impact on water quality. Eligible property owners interested in implementing water quality improvement projects, including upgrading their existing sanitary systems to low-nitrogen treatment systems, in order to improve water quality and help protect our precious lakes, harbors, and ponds, are encouraged to apply for this opportunity to fund their projects.

Applications for the second round of 2020 grant funding will be accepted from June 22, 2020, through August 20, 2020, at 4 p.m. Once the application window closes, all applications received will be reviewed and rated by the Water Quality Technical Advisory Committee, and recommendations for grant awards will be presented to the Town Board for funding allocations.

The Round 2 2020 Request for Applications form is attached and can also be found on the Town website on the Natural Resources Department, Clean Water East Hampton page or can be emailed directly to applicants upon request.

Please direct questions or application submissions to the Natural Resources Department at naturalresources@ehamptonny.gov or 631-324-0496.
