WaterSMART: Title XVI WIIN Water Reclamation and Reuse Projects

Through the Title XVI Water Reclamation and Reuse Program (Title XVI), authorized by Public Law (P.L.) 102-575 in 1992, Reclamation provides financial and technical assistance to local water agencies for the planning, design, and construction of water reclamation and reuse projects.

Water recycling


is a tool in stretching the limited water supplies in the Western United States.

Title XVI projects develop and supplement urban and irrigation water supplies through water reuse—thereby improving efficiency, providing flexibility during water shortages, and diversifying the water supply.

These projects provide growing communities with new sources of clean water which increases water management flexibility and makes our water supply more reliable.

Title XVI water projects are an important part of the WaterSMART Program.

For further information on the WaterSMART Program, see https://www.usbr.gov/watersmart/.

The Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (WIIN), P.L.

114-322, was enacted in December 2016 to address water resources infrastructure that is critical to the Nation’s economic growth, health, and competitiveness.

Section 4009(c) of Subtitle J of WIIN includes amendments to Reclamation’s Title XVI Program.

Prior to the enactment of WIIN, funding for water recycling project construction could only be provided for congressionally authorized Title XVI projects.

The WIIN amendments allow new water recycling projects to be eligible to receive Federal funding.

The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (NOFO) is to invite sponsors of projects eligible under section 4009(c) of the WIIN Act (Projects) to request cost-shared funding for planning, design, and/or construction of those Projects.

An NOFO for congressionally authorized Title XVI projects is being released separately.
