Each year the CWSRF and DWSRF each publish an Intended Use Plan (IUP), which is a planning report that explains how the SRF funding "cap grant" provided by the Federal government will be used to support the programs. Each IUP involves a public hearing and comment period, a priority list, and an explanation about how money will be used to meet funding requirements. Each IUP can be amended by request in January.
Each IUP makes program decisions to meet requirements set by Congress in each year's cap grant. Those program decisions are discussed breifly below:
The Vermont-only Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund was established to provide loans to a municipality for the design, land acquisition, if necessary, and construction of a potable water supply when a household in the municipality has been disconnected involuntarily from a public water supply system for reasons other than nonpayment of fee. The loan is to the municipality, not individual home owners. Standard loan term is 20 year/3%. The rate and term may be adjusted in accordance with program guidance documents.
