Washington, D.C. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Office of Wastewater Management announced the availability of $335,000 in technical assistance for communities seeking technical support to develop an integrated planning approach to meeting Clean Water Act (CWA) requirements for municipal wastewater and stormwater management. The primary purpose of the technical assistance is to help EPA develop practical examples of how to implement the different steps in developing an integrated plan in order to provide useful information to communities across the nation who are interested in integrated planning.
The value of the total EPA assistance available in 2014 is approximately $335,000, and EPA anticipates providing assistance to five communities. Interested communities are encouraged to respond to our Request for Letters of Interest (www.epa.gov/npdes/pubs/sw_integrated_planning_2014.pdf). Letters of interest must be received by June 27, 2014, 5:00 p.m. EDT. If additional funding becomes available, EPA may return to the applicant pool identified through this request to select additional recipient communities.
