Oklahoma says $1.5M available in drought grants

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma officials say $1.5 million in drought grants is available for projects that highlight the responsible use of water.

The grants are capped at $500,000 each, and the deadline for application is Nov. 26. Gov. Mary Fallin says the responsible use of water is the most effective and immediate way to prevent future water shortages in Oklahoma.

According to the latest U.S. Drought Monitor, about 85 percent of Oklahoma is experiencing some form of drought, with the driest conditions occurring in the southwest and the Panhandle.

To be eligible for the grant, a project must demonstrate water efficiency and support drought resiliency within the community and water or wastewater system.
