Draft Year 26 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Comment Period Open Until June 3

We are pleased to announce the availability of the Draft Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Intended Use Plan (IUP) for the Twenty-sixth Federal Capitalization Grant. DWSRF is a federal/state partnership program whose purpose is to (1) provide loans to public water systems for capital improvements aimed at increasing public health protection, and (2) provide a source of funds for other Safe Drinking Water Act activities. The DWSRF Draft IUP is available May 3, 2022, on the DWSRF webpage.

The Draft IUP is the state’s request for set-aside and project loan funds to administer the loan program. It provides information on the status of the state’s DWSRF program and explains:

  • How the state will process and allocate approximately $69 million in the Project Fund portion of DWSRF.
  • Criteria used in determining construction project loan eligibility and prioritization.
  • Prioritized project list from the 2021 DWSRF Construction Loan Cycle.

The Draft DWSRF IUP is subject to a public review and comment period. The deadline to comment on the Draft DWSRF IUP is June 3, 2022. Send comments or questions on the Draft DWSRF IUP to us via email at DWSRF@doh.wa.gov or at the address below.
