Water Fluoridation Equipment: Need a little? Need a lot?

New round of grants has you covered.



The New York State Department of Health has released a third round of funding opportunities to support counties, cities, towns, or villages (municipalities) that own their public water system, for costs related to the construction, installation, repair, replacement, or upgrade of fluoride equipment in drinking water facilities.


Take advantage of the Drinking Water Fluoridation Fund grants regardless of whether your equipment need is large or small:


  • One opportunity supports municipalities with funding up to $50,000 for the planning and implementation of community water fluoridation.  Component 1 (Planning # DOH01-DWF1R3-2017) will pay for development of an engineering report to initiate or maintain water fluoridation.  Component 2 (Implementation # DOH01-DWF2R3-2017) will pay for the upgrade, replacement, repair or purchase of equipment to initiate or maintain water fluoridation. 


·         The second opportunity (RFA- # DOH01-DWF3R3-2017) supports municipalities seeking to upgrade, replace or repair existing water fluoridation equipment or install fluoridation systems in public water systems that have authorized the implementation of fluoridation.  Applicants may request between $50,001 and $1 million in funding.


Both opportunities are now posted on the NYS Grants Gateway. Applications for both components will be accepted until November 4, 2016.
