The Septic-to-Sewer Program will assist local governments and authorities with constructing viable wastewater treatment systems to enhance public health and prevent groundwater contamination. The program will provide grants for the provision of sewer in jurisdictions with no public sewer service. This program is competitive; an application does not guarantee funding. GEFA may award up to $3,000,000 per applicant, dependent on the number of applicants and funding availability. GEFA reserves the right to adjust the maximum award amount if needed.
What are GEFA’s objectives with the Septic-to-Sewer Program?
1. To provide sewer infrastructure in unsewered areas.
2. To provide gap funding for applicants who require a “boost” to bring the project to fruition.
3. To assist communities with educating residents on their role in protecting the new infrastructure.
Who can apply for the Septic-to-Sewer Grants?
Georgia cities, counties, local authorities, and local governments that have no public sewer in their service areas.
The application deadline is Friday, July 2, 2021, at 5:00 p.m.
