Welcome to the
The Financial Management Program administers the engineering planning advance, engineering grant, and revolving loan programs. It also writes grant and loan awards for pollution control and water supply treatment and distribution and wastewater treatment and collections systems, and solid waste projects, and performs audit functions for the above projects.
Growth Center and Growth Management Guidance -
The Growth Center and Growth Management Guidance Document provides guidance for municipalities, consultants, Agency of Natural Resources’ staff and others interpreting the Municipal Pollution Control Priority System Rule. The rule establishes criteria for Agency funding of wastewater treatment facilities. The Guidance Document includes an explanation (types and characteristics) of “growth centers” for the purpose of the rule amendment and state regulatory proceedings associated with any infrastructure improvements. The Guidance Document also identifies and evaluates the effectiveness of local planning and regulatory tools that are available to municipalities to manage growth associated with sewer line extensions outside of growth centers.
Guidance Document Update - Engineering Fee Allowances -
An engineering fee allowance applicable to water supply and wastewater projects funded by DEC grant and loan programs was originally established in 1987 and was amended periodically to adjust for inflation. The revision below addresses concerns about the appropriateness of the previous allowance to address engineering cost for very small projects and very large projects, and is based on more recent data from Vermont and Connecticut.
Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program provides low cost loan financing to municipal and privately owned public water systems for capital improvements that improve public health protection and facilitate compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act.
