The Clean Water Fund Financial Assistance for Municipal Projects

The Clean Water Fund is the mechanism through which CT DEEP provides financial assistance to municipalities for projects addressing wastewater needs.

Due to resource constraints, municipalities should allocate a minimum of 90 calendar days from the date of submission to CT DEEP for the review and comment or approval of any document submitted related to the Clean Water Fund.  These documents may include, but are not limited to, funding applications, engineering reports, plans and specifications, and professional services contracts.

Implementation or execution of such documents without prior written approval by CT DEEP will result in loss of funding eligibility for the subject of the document.

Intended Use Plan

The CT Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program is authorized by the Clean Water Act and is capitalized with funds from the federal government, plus a required 20% match of funds from the state. Each year, the CWSRF program must submit a plan to the US EPA discussing how the program intends to apply that year’s funding on projects that address the state’s highest priority water quality needs. This ‘Intended Use Plan,’ or IUP, includes a list of projects from CT’s Clean Water Fund Priority List, short- and long-term goals of the program, how the funds would be distributed, information on the activities to be supported, and how the program will meet certain specific requirements pertaining to the management and use of the funds.  Since the IUP directly aligns with the Priority List, public review and comment of the IUP occurs simultaneously with the public notice process for CT’s Clean Water Fund Priority List.
