Applications are now being accepted for the Water Quality Financing Program. 

 

The Water Quality Financing Program was created in 2018 as a state funded revolving loan fund to finance projects that improve water quality. Priority is given to projects that are collaborative efforts. Projects can address either point source or nonpoint source water quality issues. 

 

Eligible applicants include municipalities, landowners, public utilities, rural water districts and industries that are required by the Nutrient Reduction Strategy (NRS) to collect data and evaluate alternatives to reduce discharges of nitrogen and phosphorous. This program is a separate program from the State Revolving Fund Program funded by the Environmental Protection Agency.

 

Applications are due March 12, 2021. The application and program rules can be found on the Water Quality Resources web page.
