This manuscript focuses on the process of identifying, applying for, and obtaining funding in an efficient manner. Internet searches for funding opportunities (i.e. grants, loans, tax credits) for water, wastewater, and energy-related projects can be an overwhelming and arduous process. Thus, a streamlined approach and a user-friendly data management system were developed. It was determined that the most efficient way to search for funding opportunities is to first clearly state the objective before beginning any research. This should include the project details and funding required. A data management system also proved necessary for the ultimate goal of obtaining funding for projects.
