Phosphorous Reduction Grants
The Phosphorus Reduction grant program provides grants to units of local government for the capital costs of wastewater treatment projects or portions thereof that will reduce the total discharge of phosphorus from the facility to one milligram per liter or less.
Administered by the Public Facilities Authority, the program provides grants for 75 percent of eligible costs up to a maximum of $500,000. The grant percentage drops to 50 percent in fiscal year 2011.
Projects and the eligible as-bid costs must be certified by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency prior to grant award.
Grants are awarded based on the estimated cost in the application or the as-bid cost, whichever is less.
