Presently, all program funds have been committed.
The Infrastructure Rehabilitation Program is a grant program authorized
under Chapter 8, Article 5 of the Safe Drinking Water, Clean Water,
Watershed Protection, and Flood Protection Act (Proposition 13).
It provides assistance to poor communities. It funds construction
projects and feasibility studies to fix or replace failing water
distribution systems that threaten the health, safety, and economy
of the communities.
The program is competitive. The demand for funding exceeds the
amount of money allocated under Proposition 13. Since the program
began in 2001, it received more than 71 proposals representing about
$124 million during three funding cycles. Of these requests, it
awarded $56.4 million for 22 feasibility studies and 20 construction
projects. For a summary of these projects and studies, click on
the Grant Fund Recipients.
Although all program funds have been committed, we recognize the
need for more program funding. If we get it, information will be
posted on this Web Site.
