PV* – Present Value Subsidy *DNR made minor changes to the Amendments sections of the codes. Changes made to the state statutes in the 2015-2017 biennial budget process removed PV (present value subsidy) from the statute to reflect restructuring of the Environmental Improvement Fund, hence references to PV in the codes are no longer valid. Note: The hardship subchapter includes many references to present value subsidy (PV) because the statutes used PV as a financial control mechanism in the structure of the loan programs. In the most recent budget, PV was eliminated from the statutes. Therefore, a number of sections in this subchapter already need revisions to adjust to the new fund structure.
