The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) provides low interest loans to municipalities and privately-owned public water systems for planning, final design and construction of water system improvements that protect public health and facilitate compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The Drinking Water Project Priority List (PPL) is adopted each year to identify drinking water projects qualifying for available funding through the DWSRF Program. All projects seeking funding for construction from 10/1/2018 through 9/30/2020 must be on the adopted priority list to receive funding. Applying to be on the priority list is not applying for a loan and does not guarantee a loan. The priority list application is to be filled out annually and, once completed, emailed to Applications are due by Friday February 16, 2018.

The remaining schedule for the Federal FY18 Capitalization Grant award process is as follows:

  • 2/16/2018, Priority List Application Deadline
  • 3/2/2018, Draft Intended Use Plan (IUP) available and distributed
  • 4/5/2018, Public Hearing at National Life Building, Montpelier, The Montpelier Room, Davis B, time TBD
  • 4/20/2018, Public Comment Period Ends
  • 5/4/2018, Final IUP and Project Priority List

We strongly recommended that any project anticipating construction during the FY18 PPL funding cycle apply for a Planning Loan to ensure that readiness-to-proceed criteria is met.
