The Emerging Contaminants in Small or Disadvantaged Communities grant program will provide states and territories with grants to public water systems in small or disadvantaged communities to address emerging contaminants, including Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). Grants will be awarded non‐competitively to states and territories.
States and territories will be able to apply for funding through the Emerging Contaminants in Small or Disadvantaged Communities grant program later this year. Eligible activities include:
- Efforts to address emerging contaminants in drinking water that would benefit a small or disadvantaged community on a per household basis;
- Technical assistance to evaluate emerging contaminant problems;
- Programs to provide household water-quality testing, including testing for unregulated contaminants;
- Local contractor training;
- Activities necessary and appropriate for a state to respond to an emerging contaminant.
