The Municipal Wastewater Treatment Construction Grant Amendments of 1981 (PL 97-117) eliminated Step 1 and Step 2 grants after December 29, 1981, and replaced them with an allowance to help defray the costs of planning and design. Other provisions reduced the Federal grant share to 55 percent after September 30, 1984; eliminated grants for collection sewer systems, major sewer rehabilitation, and correction of CSOs after September 30, 1984 (except under certain conditions); required States to reevaluate their water quality standards; emphasized low cost alternatives, particularly for small communities. The Handbook reflects the provisions of the 1981 Amendments and its implementing regulations.
