The Disaster Water Grants Program provides funding to help rural communities handle expenses related to presidentially declared disasters that damaged water systems. Water systems include all water resource infrastructure, including drinking water, wastewater, storm drainage, and solid waste facilities.

For the current opportunity, funding may be used to develop water infrastructure system capacity and resiliency to reduce or eliminate long term risks from hazards resulting from presidentially declared disasters during calendar year 2022.
