Grants and Funding: Small, Underserved, and Disadvantaged Communities Grant Program (WIIN)
The Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act establishes multiple grants to award funding to states, territories, and tribes to address, support, and improve America’s drinking water infrastructure. Included in the WIIN Act are three drinking water grants that promote public health and protection of the environment.
These grants include the following:

Applications due June 30, 2022.
