The Environmental Infrastructure Working Group (EIWG) is a group of representatives from various state and federal agencies that meets with communities to discuss all funding options for water and wastewater infrastructure projects. The group has also reviewed storm water and economic development project funding options.
Communities request a meeting with the EIWG by submitting the two (2) page In-Take Document to the IRDC (see link below). A meeting will then be scheduled between the EIWG and the community. Project meetings allow communities to collectively meet with agency representatives to evaluate the community's situation and to identify funding and technical assistance options. The project meeting and in-take document process allows communities the opportunity to explore all assistance options at one meeting. It also provides for early coordination of multiple funding sources.
