50 percent of the construction costs eligible under part 7077.0730 up to a maximum amount of $2,500 per structure with wastewater flows for a trench or bed system and $3,750 per structure with wastewater flows for a mound system; and
A municipality that receives only a part of the grant to which it is entitled, due to the limitation of funding, will be entitled to receive a grant amendment in the next year or years, if individual sewage treatment systems grant funding is available, until the full amount of the grant is awarded. If a municipality accepts a partial grant it must identify which project elements will be completed with the grant as part of the grant agreement.
Individual sewage treatment system grant funds that are not allocated for a fundable project, that are refused by a municipality, or that are denied award by the commissioner or authority shall remain in the grant fund for distribution during the next application cycle.
Grant amendments shall be made as described in items A and B.
Grant increase amendments shall only be made to fulfill the original grant entitlement for municipalities that receive partial awards as described under subpart 2, to reimburse the eligible cost for failed individual sewage treatment systems in a project planning area that were not identified on the funding list placement request, and to reimburse site evaluation and system design costs eligible under subpart 1, item B, for municipalities that received individual sewage treatment system grant awards before July 1, 1990. Grant increases shall be made during an application cycle when funds are available and the grant increase has been classified as fundable on the corresponding funding list.
Grant decrease amendments shall be made upon project completion to reduce the grant to correspond with the amount of incurred, grant eligible costs.
