Municipal Inflow and Infiltration Grant Program

Inflow/Infiltration Grant Program

The 2023 Municipal I/I Grant Program consists of $12M in bonding bill funding for the purpose of providing grants to municipalities for capital improvements to public infrastructure to mitigate I/I. Projects must be completed in calendar years 2024 or 2025 to be eligible for these grants funded through state bonds.

The I/I Grant Program is available to metro area communities that have been designated excessive I/I contributors by the Met Council, or that have had a measurable flow rate within 20 percent of the permitted flow limit. 

Eligible work includes:

  • Pipe lining and replacement
  • Pipe joint sealing
  • Manhole lining or replacement
  • Chimney seals, manhole sealing joints, castings, or covers
  • Flood mitigation
  • Cross connection elimination
  • Repair or replace lateral tee, wye, or tap connections

Non-eligible work:

  • Studies, investigations, or investigations
  • Engineering costs
  • Privately owned or operated service line improvements.

Qualified spending must occur between January 1, 2024 and December 31, 2025.

We held a virtual information session on the 2023 grant program in November 2023. Meeting materials from that information session are available below.
