The Clean Water Fund was established in June of 2015 when Governor Shumlin signed into law Act 64, the Vermont Clean Water Act. The Fund is supported by a 0.2 percent surcharge on the property transfer tax on properties over $100,000. The challenge now facing the state is how to develop a funding solution for the Fund.
The Clean Water Fund Board allocates Clean Water Fund dollars each year following a budget process with multiple opportunities for public participation. This webpage provides an overview of the Clean Water Fund budget process and opportunities to provide input in next year’s allocations.
