Oklahoma Rural Infrastructure Grant

Note: Due to funding constraints, all new RIG applications are being placed on a waiting list for consideration. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply and to let their state legislators know how valuable this program is to small water utilities.

The Oklahoma Rural Infrastructure Grant (RIG) program helps rural and small municipal water and wastewater systems become sustainable and improve infrastructure, with up to $100,000 in funding per project. The program will fund 80 percent of the project cost. The other 20 percent must be matched by the system, either through dollars or in-kind contributions.
