Now Accepting Submissions For FY2019 Project Priority List
The Project Priority List (PPL) will be utilized in the decision-making process for assistance from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Interceptor Bond Fund programs.
The Clean Water SRF program provides below market rate interest loans for projects. The program can fund a wide array of water pollution abatement projects from the traditional sewers and sewage treatment projects, to landfill closures, community septic system repair programs and stormwater treatment or mitigation projects, as well as riverbank and estuarine restoration projects, including salt marsh restorations. Alternative energy and water efficiency projects that benefit a water pollution treatment facility are SRF eligible, along with projects that make wastewater infrastructure more resilient to the effects of climate change. Also, open space acquisitions with a water quality nexus are eligible for CWSRF financing.
The Interceptor Bond Fund provides 50% matching grants up to $500,000 for the construction of interceptor sewers (10” in diameter or greater), or their functional equivalent, to service areas that should no longer be served by septic systems.
A new feature this year is businesses, non-profit organizations, and individuals are now eligible to submit their stormwater pollution abatement and septic system repair projects for inclusion on the FY '19 PPL.
