The South Carolina Infrastructure Investment Program (SCIIP) is a major one-time initiative to improve water, wastewater and stormwater systems throughout the state using federal funds allocated by the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). SCIIP offers a unique opportunity to make long-term capital improvements that will strengthen critical services to residents and businesses across the state, create more resilient communities and build the capacity to support future opportunities for growth and economic development.

In July, the RIA held several regional meetings around the state (Duncan/Spartanburg, Aiken, Florence and Summerville), presenting on the SCIIP program, taking questions from the audience and meeting one on one with those interested in discussing potential projects.
We thank everything for their participation.
The Powerpoint slides from the regional meetings are now available.
$10 million may be requested per project or application for competitive infrastructure grants.
Units of local government, special purpose districts, commission of public works and joint municipal organizations. Units of local government may apply on behalf of non-profit water and sewer systems. Applicants must generally own or operate the facilities to be improved.
Water, wastewater and stormwater
“Water and sewer are key to life. The right water and sewer systems in a county can transform a tax base, creating jobs, good schools, and a vibrant community. With this investment … we can ensure that South Carolina will have the workforce, the infrastructure, and the quality of life necessary to compete nationally and globally for jobs and investment – for generations to come.”
