EPA Posts New Updates/Training on Federal Disaster Funding Tool

EPA has posted a series of short video trainings to help introduce water and wastewater utilities to EPA’s tool, Federal Funding for Utilities-Water/Wastewater-in National Disasters (Fed FUNDS).  This can be a great resource for smaller systems who will need to know where to go for funding if there is a major disaster.  On the web at www.epa.gov/fedfunds, this new, user-friendly approach walks the user through a series of “how to” scenarios that apply in advance of, during, and after a disaster has occurred…literally, at the press of a button!

Which Funding is Right for You? – guides you to the most applicable funding programs

  • Be Prepared to Tap into Funding – lists activities to prepare you to apply for funding
  • Currently in a Disaster? – provides forms and photologs to document the damage
  • Federal Disaster Funding Programs – covers federal programs from FEMA, EPA, USDA, and others
  • Utility Examples, Training, & Assistance – includes successful applications, training on funding, and funding mentors
