Who's Eligible

All entities planning to use SRF funding must contact the Department of Environmental Quality SRF Loan Program and request that their project(s) be added to the Water Pollution Control (WPC) or Drinking Water (DW) SRF Project Priority List contained in the Intended Use Plan. This annual process, typically, begins in July to identify projects which may need SRF funding for their project in the upcoming year. Early notification by the applicant is essential to get on the Priority List and a project remains on the list until it has been completed regardless of the funding source(s) used to finance the project.
