Environmental Loans (EL) Compendium of 2015 revisions to chs. NR 162 & NR 166 Interest rate subsidies for SLP

(ch. NR 162, Wis. Adm. Code, subch. IV)

This page provides information about the changes DNR made to the Interest Rate Subsidies for Small Loans Program (SLP) sections of the Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) code. SLP is a subprogram of CWFP.

  • Under s. NR 162.38, we raised the maximum project cost of loans for which the CWFP can provide interest rate subsidy from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000.
  • To match the structure of the revised scoring section, we rearranged s. NR 162.39.
  • Like for all CWFP and SDWLP projects, the Small Loans subprogram will not provide financial assistance for a project that has been substantially complete for 3 years or more.
Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)

The Procurement section of this subchapter includes a minor revision, changing Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) to Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) to be consistent with the requirements for solicitation of DBEs for regular loans and hardship assistance. In the Small Loans Program, the applicant is encouraged to solicit DBEs to participate in the project.

Construction site performance standards

The references to construction site performance standards in the previous codes were out-of-date. Revised references identify current construction site performance standards as found on DNR's Storm Water Technical Standards, Models, and BMPs web page.
