CARRINGTON, ND (June 16, 2021) – The Garrison Diversion Conservancy District has opened an additional application period for the Water Supply Assistance Grant Program and is now accepting applications requesting assistance for new customer hookups.
The Water Supply Assistance Grant Program provides funding assistance to offset the costs of new customer hookups to a rural water system or district. The grant program will also aid municipal water systems or districts with extraordinary OM&R projects impacting the delivery of water to users, introduce health and safety issues, or bring potential harm to other infrastructure if not repaired.
Eligibility requirements state the applicant must reside within one of Garrison Diversion’s 28 member counties, must be or have a member sponsor that is a political subdivision (municipality or rural water district), and a municipality must have a population of 5,000 people or less that are being served.
Applications for new customer hookups must be postmarked or timestamped by August 1
to be eligible. There continues to be no deadline on extraordinary OM&R projects, as these will occur on an as-needed basis. Grant guidelines and applications can be found on Garrison Diversion’s website, www.garrisondiversion.org/programs/municipal_rural_and_industrial_grants
