The Michigan state legislature appropriated $48 million for a grant program for community technical, managerial, and financial (TMF) support for lead line replacement under Section 1001 of PA 166 of 2022.

The TMF program’s goal is to better position communities to take advantage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) DWSRF dollars for lead line replacement, which are available through Fiscal Year 2027.

Eligible activities include:

  • Physical verification of service lines at properties where lead is suspected but not confirmed or where service line material is unknown but likely contains lead
  • If the above scope is included, proposals can also include:
    • Project planning document development related to lead line replacements
    • Outreach/education in support of lead service line replacement activities

All publicly owned community drinking water systems are eligible for this funding, with priority given to applicants that have not previously received funding for these activities and have low Median Annual Household Income (MAHI) per the federal census.

The maximum grant award per proposal is $600,000. There are no local match requirements.

All work pertaining to this project must be completed by September 15, 2026.
