Environmental Loans (EL) Hardship financial assistance deadlines

Note: the Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) Hardship Program will cease after the State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2018 funding cycle, with an exception for one (1) municipality for which a complete application for SFY 2019 funding can still be submitted by June 30, 2018.

Application guidance and considerations are available under the "How to Apply" tab on our "Environmental Loans" webpage.

October 31

Pre-Application Deadline: All Intents to Apply (ITAs) & Priority Evaluations and Ranking Formulas (PERFs) must be submitted online by October 31 for the following state fiscal year (SFY) funding cycle.

  • An ITA/PERF must be submitted online to DNR for each project for which you will be seeking financial assistance.

  • All ITAs/PERFs must be submitted annually online because they will only be valid for one state fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).

  • Example: You must submit your ITA/PERF by the October 31, 2016 deadline if you're seeking funding in SFY 2018, which begins July 1, 2017 and ends June 30, 2018.

June 30

Application Deadline: Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) Financial Assistance Applications requesting Hardship must be postmarked by June 30 for the upcoming state fiscal year (SFY) funding cycle.

  • Make sure the application is complete; this includes receiving facility plan approval from the DNR Bureau of Watershed Management (see Next Steps for Wastewater Applicants of the CWFP [PDF]).

  • Example: You must submit your Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) Financial Assistance Applications requesting Hardship by the June 30, 2017 deadline if you're seeking funding in SFY 2018, which begins July 1, 2017 and ends June 30, 2018.

August 30

Loan Closing Deadline: Financial Assistance Agreements (FAAs) must be signed by the August 30 following the calendar year in which funding was allocated.

  • Hardship FAAs must be executed by August 30 for prior year's Hardship Financial Assistance allocations.

  • Example: You must sign/execute the FAA for your SFY 2018 CWFP Hardship project by August 22, 2018 (which is the final loan closing date for SFY 2018 Hardship projects).

    • Note: State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2019 begins July 1, 2018 and ends June 30, 2019.
