Grants up to $30,000 are available for eligible homeowners to assist with design and installation costs. Any amount owed above $30,000 is the responsibility of the homeowner. Applicants are limited to one grant per lifetime, meaning if an applicant receives a Savvy Septic Grant they will be ineligible to receive another in the future for any property they own or any property for which they are a member of the household.

Funding for grants is currently available and is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until all funding is exhausted.
