About the Program
The 1987 amendments to the Federal Clean Water Act replaced the Construction Grants program with the Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program (CWSRF). Under the CWSRF, Congress provides the states with grant funds to establish revolving loan programs to assist in the funding of wastewater treatment facilities and projects associated with estuary and nonpoint source programs. The states are required to provide 20% matching funds. In North Carolina, these funds are made available to units of local government at one-half (1/2) of the market rate for a period of up to twenty (20) years. The actual term of the loan is determined by the State Treasurer's Office.
The Intended Use Plan is the "short list" of projects anticipated to receive funding for the upcoming fiscal year and is the subject of an annual Public Hearing. In order to receive funding, projects must be included on the State Project List.
