Clean Water Construction Grant Program

The mission of the District of Columbia’s Clean Water Construction (CWC) program is to fund the design and construction of voluntary projects that work to provide clean water to District streams and rivers. Projects are selected for funding using the process described by the District of Columbia Project Priority Rating System (PPRS), available for download below.

The program receives funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water State Revolving Fund for up to 55% of a project. Project applicants must provide for 45% of their project’s costs using any non-federal funding source. Local match can be contributed from any non-federal funding source.

DOEE funds three categories of work:  Stormwater Green Infrastructure Projects, Stormwater Grey Infrastructure Projects, and Sewage Infrastructure Projects. Project partners manage projects from planning to completion of construction. CWC staff support their efforts by ensuring that project activities are performed in compliance with federal regulations and achieve CWC goals.
