Request Clean Water Funds Now!

August 8, 2018

Time is running short to request funds from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources fiscal year 2019 Clean Water Fund. The FY19 CWF RFP  will close at on August 31st. Applications must be submitted via eLINK, BWSR’s grant management system. Eligible applicants without a current eLINK user account must submit an account request no later than 7 days prior to the application deadline. 

USDA Rural Development has more than $4 billion loans available now to help rural communities build or upgrade water infrastructure. This is a substantial increase from last year. The American Water Works Association estimates that more than $600 billion is needed over the next 20 years to upgrade our nation's water and wastewater systems. In Minnesota, the future needs increased $800 million over just the past two years, and now projects to $4.99 billion in needs over the next 20 years, based on the 2018 state Biennial Survey of Wastewater Collection and Treatment.
