EPA New FITS Funding Integration Tool for Source Water

EPA has released its new Funding Integration Tool for Source Water (FITS) to help states, tribes and territories navigate and leverage funding opportunities for activities that protect sources of drinking water. FITS is a web-based, interactive tool that includes information on eleven federal funding sources and outlines how they may be used for activities related to source water protection planning and implementation. EPA worked across the federal government and with states, stakeholders, and partner organizations (including ASDWA) to create the tool that provides tips for long-term cross-program planning and includes examples on how these funding sources have been leveraged in the past. For more information and to use FITS, visit the EPA website.
