Region 3 WaterTA Program

The Region 3 Water Technical Assistance (WaterTA) program is offering direct support to municipalities, tribes, and water utilities in US EPA Region 3 to help them access federal and state funding to address water infrastructure needs. This assistance will be delivered over the coming five years at no cost to recipients, through an award from the US Environmental Protection Agency.  Assistance is available on a need basis, with priority given to historically underserved and disadvantaged communities. 

Available services include assistance identifying water challenges; developing plans; building technical, financial, and managerial capacity; and completing funding application materials.  See the graphic below for a full list of available services.
