The Water Recycling Funding Program (WRFP) promotes the beneficial use of treated municipal wastewater (water recycling) in order to augment or offset fresh water supplies in California.
Water recycling construction projects must offset or augment state or local fresh water supplies. Eligible projects include construction of recycled water treatment facilities, storage facilities, pumping facilities, groundwater recharge facilities, and recycled water distribution systems, including onsite improvements. Eligible costs for grant are limited to construction only. The grant will be established as 35 percent of the reasonable, estimated construction cost for the project up to the maximum established by the State Water Board in the annual Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Intended Use Plan or as otherwise limited by the State Water Board. Applications for WRFP Construction Grant must also follow the CWSRF Policy and priority scoring system. Applications are continuously accepted. All application documents received by December 31st each year will be used to develop a priority score. Projects which receive a priority score equal to or greater than the yearly fundable list cutoff score will be placed on the fundable list for the upcoming fiscal year. The annual fundable list runs from July 1 to June 30. The State Water Board aims to execute funding agreements for all projects placed on the fundable list during that fiscal year.
