Funding is now available through the State Revolving Fund programs
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL, provides the US Environmental Protection Agency with funds that can be awarded to states to support clean water infrastructure. BIL will infuse EFC's State Revolving Fund financing programs with additional funding annually for five years, starting in 2022. New York State has received $427 million in the first installment. This will allow the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs to support more water quality and infrastructure improvement projects throughout NYS.
How Can I Access These Funds?
The first step in applying for financing through the State Revolving Funds is listing a project to be included in the Intended Use Plans (IUP) for the State Revolving Funds. IUPs are published annually to list requests by municipalities for funding from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). IUPs list wastewater projects and drinking water projects that have the potential to advance to construction in a given year.
EFC is providing resources to help municipalities comply with state and federal funding requirements. This section will be updated as resources become available.
