2020 has been a year of constant change as we continue to adapt to the “new normal.” The one thing that is certain is that municipalities across California are facing grim budget cuts for the 2020-21 fiscal year. Amid furloughs, pay concessions, the loss of jobs, and cuts to community programs, municipalities will still need to manage and maintain essential infrastructure.
California State Agency grants or loans are one way to help stretch 2020-21 budgets. This month the California State Library launched the California Grants Portal, a searchable webpage that posts all state grant and loan opportunities.
With fewer resources and tighter budgets, now is the time to prepare your water infrastructure projects for grants and other funding options. EKI is ready to help you:
- apply for State Revolving Fund loans or grants,
- convert pre-design reports into a streamlined design- bid package,
- prepare plans and specs that are ready to bid, and
- identify opportunities for green infrastructure projects.
