An Intended Use Plan (IUP) is prepared annually to account for how the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) will be used during a federal fiscal year. The need for funding continues to outpace availability. The IUP prioritizes projects based on a scoring system and determines which projects can be funded. 

The IUP is a federal requirement and is subject to public review and comment.

List a Project

Before you can seek financing through State Revolving Funds, you must first list the project in the Intended Use Plan

A new project may be listed at any time. Listed projects represent those that need financing and allows EFC to allocate State Revolving Funds for the year. Annual and Multi-Year lists are published in the Intended Use Plan (IUP). 

All eligible projects that are submitted are included in the IUP at the beginning of a federal fiscal year. 

Submitted projects are screened for eligibility, scored, ranked, and listed in the IUP. If your project is included on the Annual List in the IUP, EFC will accept a formal financing application for the project.

Watch EFC's step-by-step videos to learn how to use the Project Listing and Update System (PLUS).

Project Scoring

Project Scoring

Projects are scored using a project priority score system using criteria outlined in state law. In general, State Revolving Fund projects that improve and restore water quality generally receive the highest scores. Projects that protect water quality are generally given secondary priority. The scoring criteria also consider factors such as financial hardship.

Interest Rates

A project's score and rank determines the types of financings available on the Annual List:

  • Hardship financing at zero interest
  • Subsidized financing at low-interest
  • Market rate at low interest
