The Syracuse University Environmental Finance Center (SU-EFC) offers an annual mini-grant program opportunity that provides rural municipalities in New York State with the proper tools and resources to fully conduct an Asset Management (AM) inventory for their water or wastewater system. An AM inventory serves as a useful first-step for creating an AM plan, which can then be used as a decision-making tool to aid municipalities in the development of a capital management plan. This program offers mini-grants to three communities each year. The SU-EFC also offers no-cost AM training for all interested communities.
