Source Water Protection Grants

DEQ’s source water protection grants fund projects to protect public drinking water sources. Eligible activities include those that reduce the risk of contamination of a drinking water source. Projects must contribute to improved protection of one or more public water supply sources.

Eligible applicants include public water systems, state and local government agencies, tribes, special districts (such as soil conservation districts), associations, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions in Idaho. Federal agencies and owners of privately owned, for-profit public water systems where drinking water is not the main function of their business are not eligible for funding.

The FY2024 grant application cycle is closed. Depending on funding availability, we expect the FY2025 source water protection grant cycle to open in late spring/early summer 2024.
