Intended Use Plans

Each year the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) publish Intended Use Plans (IUPs) that explain how the SRF funding capitalization grants provided by the federal government will be used to support the programs and meet requirements set by Congress. IUPs address critical program details including discussions of Project Priority Lists, Subsidy (one form of loan forgiveness), DWSRF Set-Asides, and CWSRF Green Project Reserve. Public comments on draft IUPs are accepted at a public hearing and by contacting program staff.

Engineering Planning Advance

Municipalities without existing water or sewer rate payers  wishing to plan for a community-based drinking water or wastewater solution, can receive an Engineering Planning Advance to finance the costs of a Feasibility Study or a Preliminary Engineering Report.  (Currently there are no Drinking Water Engineering Planning Advance dollars appropriated, however, unsewered communities may explore a drinking water solution to wastewater issues.)

The Vermont Engineering Planning Advance Program is a financial program available to Vermont municipalities:

On-site Loan Program

Program Information

The Vermont Wastewater and Potable Water Revolving Loan Fund, also known as the On-site Loan Program, is available to certain Vermont residents for the repair or replacement of failed on-site wastewater and water supply systems.  For more information, please view the Fact Sheet, below.

VT Pollution Control Grants

Currently Vermont statute allows for Pollution Control Grants of 10%  - 35% for qualifying Water Pollution Abatement and Control Projects. 

Qualifying project elements must be Water Pollution Abatement and Control Facilities.

VT Pollution Control SRF

Vermont statute allows for potential project funding through this funding source.   All dollars are Vermont based, therefore, there are no federal requirements associated with these projects.  Projects generally follow the CWSRF process, but several requirements can be omitted, such as:

  • NEPA Environmental Review
  • American Iron and Steel
  • Davis-Bacon Wage Rates
  • Disadvantaged Business Enterprise 

However, there are still several similar State of Vermont requirements, such as:

Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection

The MISSION of the Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection Division is to protect human health and the environment for this and future generations by managing Vermont’s drinking water supplies; protecting the quality and quantity of Vermont’s groundwater resources; and regulating wastewater disposal activities that could adversely affect groundwater. The Division accomplishes this mission through its outreach, education, assistance and regulatory activities.
