Is my project cost-effective?

The District now offers online calculators to allow applicants to estimate their project’s cost-effectiveness, which is a key evaluation criterion.  Calculators are available for equipment replacement projects and marine vessel repower projects. Use of the calculators is for estimation purposes only and does not guarantee a project will qualify for funding.  Click the calculator that applies to your project below:
