Crow Tribe of Indians Phase 2 Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Improvement Project

The project entails the following capital improvements to infrastructure: constructing an aerated lagoon, wastewater interceptor extension, and main lift station; replacing wastewater lines; replacing water service saddles; replacing fire hydrants; purchasing a bulk water dispensing station; improving stormwater drainage; and, demolishing a small building. Construction of the project is expected to be complete in fall 2010.

Nittany Grantworks prepared the Indian Community Development Block Grant, Community Development Block Grant, State and Tribal Assistance Grant, and Water Resources Development Act Grant applications.

Nittany Grantworks completed the following grant administration activities: facilitated the engagement of grant contracts, met federal and state guidelines for the proper procurement of engineering services, completed environmental assessment worksheets, developed and published FONSI/NOI/RROF, prepared quarterly project progress reports, provided Big Horn County relevant project information for its required CDBG file, and participated in a CDBG grant administration workshop facilitated by Montana Department of Commerce. Nittany Grantworks also assisted the Crow Tribe in coordinating all sources of funding, preparing written reports and checklists, and reviewing all proposed project expenditures and their proper allocation to the project budget and funding source.
