SWAP Grant Program

VDH's Septic and Well Assistance Program

The Virginia Department of Health received a $11.5 million allocation in the Governor’s Budget Bill approved on August 10, 2021 to help low-income homeowners repair or replace well and septic systems. The allocation is part of the Commonwealth’s funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).  The Office of Environmental Health Services (OEHS) is using those ARPA funds through the Septic and Well Assistance Program (SWAP), which to assist homeowners with incomes at or below 200% of federal poverty guidelines.

NOTICE:  SWAP applications for direct projects closed on September 2, 2022.  This is to ensure that all project applications received on or before that date are fully funded.
