Drinking Water State Revolving Fund for Sustainable Infrastructure
On this page
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) program was modeled on the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program and authorized by amendments to the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act in 1996. Continued Federal funding is contingent on annual Federal appropriations as determined by the U.S. Congress.
The DWSRF program is particularly geared toward meeting the needs of small and economically disadvantaged communities. States may use a portion of their DWSRF grants for support of state-wide drinking water programs (e.g., capacity development, operator certification, small systems technical assistance, and source water protection).
States may make Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loans for
- construction and rehabilitation of public water systems (including treatment, storage, and distribution components) for both publicly-owned and privately-owned facilities.
