Consolidation and Contamination Risk Reduction (C2R2)

The Consolidation and Contamination Risk Reduction (C2R2) Grant program was developed by EGLE under Michigan's Clean Water Plan. The C2R2 grant was established to provide assistance to drinking water systems to remove or reduce PFAS or other contaminants. The program was allocated $25 million in total funds with a maximum grant award per applicant of $5 million. Applications were accepted beginning November 16, 2020.

EGLE’s Water Infrastructure Funding and Financing Section (WIFFS), Remediation and Redevelopment Division (RDD), and Drinking Water and Environmental Health Division (DWEHD) have finalized prioritization of the C2R2 applications and have been reaching out to communities in the fundable range to execute grant agreements. Applications were scored based on the criteria outlined in the C2R2 Grant Overview (link below).

The original funding available for the C2R2 program under the MI Clean Water Plan was $25 million. As a part of that funding, $5 million was allotted for consolidation projects. Under the passage of Public Act (PA) 53 of 2022, American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds in the amount of $18 million were allocated to the C2R2 program to address PFAS contamination.

Most C2R2 grant agreements have been issued and WIFFS has been in contact with all applicants in the fundable range. Grant amounts may have changed from the original application based on eligibility determinations, updated scope, etc.
