The Invitation list does not include projects that already had complete applications that are being processed by the SDWSRF program or projects that are being considered for funding by other CDPH funding programs. Planning Applications are due by March 24, 2014 and Construction Applications are due by June 23, 2014.

SDWSRF Consolidation Incentive - To promote consolidation as a cost-effective solution to water systems that don't meet safe drinking water standards, CDPH is providing an incentive to encourage larger systems to consolidate nearby noncompliant systems. The restructured larger system will receive the opportunity for SDWSRF funding for a low ranking, otherwise non-fundable project. For more details, click here.
