Water development projects are defined with three levels. Project planning is performed in Levels I and II, and project construction is performed in Level III. Levels I and II are 100% grant funded.

  • Level I studies carry out necessary reconnaissance work
  • Level II studies determine a project's feasibility
  • Level III studies include project design, permitting, land acquisition, construction and construction engineering

Applications can be downloaded from this page or WWDC now offers applicants an online version.
