About this event

New Jersey’s Water Bank program will receive almost $1 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law over the next five years. These engagement sessions will focus on how the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection expects to use the first $168 million. DEP’s Intended Use Plans outline the funding of aspects such as project priorities and funding packages. During the engagement sessions, interested parties will be updated on the draft direction of the IUPs and will be able to provide input on priorities, affordability criteria, funding packages, project types that qualify for principal forgiveness and disadvantaged community determination criteria. The meetings also will include discussion on separate monies allocated for principal forgiveness, as well as funding to address lead, PFAS, climate change and sea-level rise.
