The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has released the finalized application for SAW Grants. A link to the application can be found here. We encourage each community to carefully consider applying for the grants and to keep a few things in mind while doing so. Consider the implication it may have on your ability to negotiate the terms and conditions of future permits, consider how accepting the grant could affect your flexibility in maintaining your systems in the future, and the short term and long term affect it could have on your community and the services it provides.
