The State of Minnesota’s 2018 Agreement and Order (Settlement) with the 3M Company (3M) establishes the 3M Grant for Water Quality and Sustainability Fund. The first priority of the Settlement - is to enhance the quality, quantity, and sustainability of drinking water in the East Metropolitan Area; this form focuses on Priority 1 Drinking Water projects.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) developed the Conceptual Drinking Water Supply Plan (Conceptual Plan) to evaluate and recommend a set of projects that provide safe, sustainable drinking water to the 14 communities currently known to be affected by PFAS contamination in the East Metropolitan Area, now and into the future. This grant form will help the State ensure that projects are consistent with the Conceptual Plan and process grant funding requests in a timely fashion. For more information, see our website: or click here.  
This grant form is for regional, local, and tribal government entities from the communities currently identified in the Conceptual Plan and will focus grant funding for planning and/or design of capital projects. Future grants will focus on construction of capital projects and operations and maintenance. Other Settlement priorities will be funded at a later time.

The State anticipates working closely with each community to submit these forms. For help or more information about this form or the planning and/or design phase of your capital project, please contact us: or click here.
