Water reuse grant applications invited in US

The US Bureau of Reclamation has invited bids for the latest round of grants to be issued under the Title XVI Water Reclamation & Reuse Program, which will provide cost-shared funding for planning, design or construction of authorised projects.

Reclamation anticipates providing no more than US$ 4 million per applicant. This is subject to WaterSMART’s final Fiscal Year 2013 appropriations, project funding capability and the amount remaining under the appropriations ceiling for each authorized project.

Approximately 5-10 awards are expected to be made this year. Proposals must be submitted as indicated on www.grants.gov by 12 December 2012.

It is anticipated that awards will be made in spring 2013.
