Environmental Loans (EL) Hardship Financial Assistance

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) designates a portion of its total subsidies available each biennium to provide additional financial assistance to municipalities meeting financial hardship criteria. To the extent subsidy is available, CWFP can provide hardship financial assistance in the form of a reduced interest rate loan, or award a grant of up to 70% of the municipality's project cost eligible for below-market interest rate.
