Drinking Water State Revolving Fund

Michigan's Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program is designed to assist water suppliers in satisfying the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act by offering low-interest loans (for 20, 30, or 40-year loans) to eligible water suppliers.

For questions on the program, contact the Water Infrastructure Financing Section.

EGLE received 280 Intent to Apply (ITA) forms totaling over $1.9 billion from applicants interested in Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 DWSRF and ARP funds. Combined with CWSRF requests, WIFFS received over 500 ITAs. In a normal funding cycle, EGLE would now reach out to each individual applicant to set up a conference call to discuss next steps. Given the extraordinary interest in FY24 funds, it will not be possible to conduct calls in a timely manner. Therefore, EGLE will be holding a DWSRF webinar November 30th. Applicants that submitted ITA’s will be notified of the webinar and link to join via email in the coming days. This will be an opportunity for WIFFS staff to provide details on the SRF process. The webinar will also lay out future WIFFS ‘office hour’ virtual calls where applicants can participate in discussions and ask questions of their district EGLE SRF and permitting staff.

A list of DWSRF FY24 ITA applicants is included for informational purposes here.
