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 Financing Section, Remediation and Redevelopment Division, and Drinking Water and Environmental Health Division worked collectively to prioritize applications based on criteria outlined in the C2R2 Grant Overview. EGLE received 32 applications totaling $80,065,141. Applications are no longer being accepted.
As of February 4, 2022, $20.9 million in grant funds have been awarded to nine projects. Three additional grants are in progress and EGLE is working with those applicants to award the remaining amount of C2R2 funds.
