The deadline for Round 3 of the Drinking Water Fluoridation Fund is approaching fast. The funding opportunities from the NYS Department of Health support costs related to the construction, installation, repair, replacement, or upgrade of fluoride equipment in drinking water facilities. Both opportunities are now posted on the NYS Grants Gateway.
One opportunity supports municipalities with funding up to $50,000 for the planning and implementation of community water fluoridation. Component 1 (Grants Gateway # DOH01-DWF1R3-2016) will pay for development of an engineering report to initiate or maintain water fluoridation. Component 2 (Grants Gateway # DWF2R3-2016) will pay for the upgrade, replacement, repair or purchase of equipment to initiate or maintain water fluoridation.
The second opportunity (RFA- Grants Gateway # DOH01-DWF3R3-2016) supports municipalities seeking to upgrade, replace or repair existing water fluoridation equipment or install fluoridation systems in public water systems that have authorized the implementation of fluoridation. Applicants may request between $50,001 and $1 million in funding.
Applications for both components will be accepted until November 4, 2016.
