State Dam Loan/Grant Funding Program  

Connecticut has a funding program to assist dam owners with repair, abandonment, or removal of dams.

Connecticut has in place a program to cost share in the repair of municipally owned dams. Funding for such dam repairs is provided by bonding from the state legislature on an as requested basis. There is no loan program or cost sharing program available for privately owned dams in the state.
