Filling Station Grant Program

Water Bottle Filling Station Grant Program Application Now Open!

Applications will be continuously accepted on a first-come first-served, rolling basis. Grants will be awarded until program funding is exhausted. To guarantee reimbursement, do not purchase your filling stations until your grant application has been approved. Applicants that intend on purchasing their filling stations by June 30, 2024, will be required to complete installation and submit all the final paperwork no later than July 31, 2024 in order to be reimbursed. Please email Sustainability@TownofTruckee.com or call 530-582-5329 with questions.

The Town of Truckee is providing grants to reimburse 50% of a water filling station purchase price (up to $2500 per unit) with a maximum of 5 units per applicant.

The Town of Truckee Water Bottle Filling Station Grant Program was created to provide the community with access to safe and reliable tap water to refill reusable water bottles, reducing the use of disposable water bottles and associated waste and litter.

Who Can Apply? You may be eligible for funds if you:

  • Are located within the Truckee town limits.
  • Are a public facility (city facility, school, community center, parks, recreation areas, etc.) or a private facility/business providing free, unrestricted public access to the filling station during standard business hours.
  • Meet criteria and fulfill application requirements.

How to Apply:

There are three components to each application: the Grant request application, the liability waiver, and a federal W-9 tax form. Applicants must submit a separate grant request application per station they would like to be reimbursed for, but only need to submit one liability waiver and W-9 form. The link to the “Refill-Station-Grant-Program-Guidelines” form provides more information about the grant program and criteria. Information on where to submit the application can be found on the application form.
