    The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) is charged with administering the water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure component of the State of Tennessee’s allocation of American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act funds. Tennessee’s Financial Stimulus Accountability Group dedicated $1.35 billion of Tennessee’s Fiscal Recovery Funds from ARP for this purpose. Of the $1.35 billion, approximately $1 billion will be awarded in the form of non-competitive grants to communities for eligible infrastructure projects as part of the Tennessee Water Infrastructure Investment Program. Please note that the application for the non-competitive grants is now closed. This website houses information, resources, and assistance to utilities pertaining to water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure funding with ARP funds.
