The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC), the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the Department of Health (DOH) are pleased to announce the availability of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funds in support of eligible projects for Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2022 and 2023.
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.
