Environmental Loans Hardship assistance criteria

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.

The Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) may be able to provide hardship financial assistance for the municipality's project if all of the following apply:

  1. The project is a wastewater project for compliance maintenance, unsewered, or new or changed limits.

  2. The municipality's median household income (MHI) is 80 percent or less of the state's median household income.

  3. The estimated total annual charges per residential user for wastewater treatment in the municipality would, without hardship assistance, exceed 2 percent of the municipality's median household income.

"Residential user" means a structure or part of a structure, including a mobile home, that is used primarily as a home, residence or sleeping place by one person, or two or more persons maintaining a common household, and that uses a publicly owned treatment work. "Residential user" does not include an institutional, commercial, industrial or governmental facility.
