Deadline for Water Infrastructure & Quality Grants Extended


In the wake of devastating flooding across New York State, including Ontario County, the deadline to apply for flood resiliency grants has been extended.

Over $500 million is available in grant funding for communities to improve their water infrastructure and quality.

Governor Kathy Hochul made the announcement Monday that the application deadline has been extended from its original deadline of July 28th to August 11th.

“Communities dealing with the destruction and aftermath of these severe weather events shouldn’t lose out on the opportunity to apply for grant funding that could advance critical water quality and resiliency projects,”¬†Governor Hochul said. “Extending the deadline will give flood-stricken communities time to finish their applications for projects that will protect public health, prepare for future severe weather events, and create jobs that boost local economies.”

Part of the funding for these grants comes from the Clean Water, lean Air, and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act which was approved by voters in 2022.
