Grants - Eligibility Requirements
The SC Rural Infrastructure Authority (RIA) is focused on making strategic investments in public water, waste water and other public facilities through competitive grant programs for eligible applicants statewide.
Eligible applicants are local governments, special purpose and public service districts, or public works commissions. Not-for-profit water/sewer companies are not eligible as applicants but may be assisted with RIA funds if the local government being served by the project agrees to be the applicant.
Projects located in all counties are eligible for funding consideration.
RIA cannot pay for non-construction costs or costs incurred prior to grant approval and prior to RIA’s issuance of a Notice to Proceed to the Grantee.
