    "Beginning October 17, 2016, funding will become available for the statewide school drinking water quality program. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) will reimburse public schools and registered nonpublic schools up to $950 per school building for drinking water testing, fixture replacements, plumbing assessments, or filter purchases for expense incurred between July 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017. Eligible districts will apply through the Michigan Electronic Grants System Plus (MEGS+). Once the application is approved, districts will be able to request reimbursement through the Cash Management System (CMS). Registered Nonpublic Schools are required to have reported in MEGS+ for the 2016–17 school year to be considered eligible." Read the official State of Michigan memorandum.
