Getting Started with the WIFIA Program
The WIFIA program is an EPA-operated bank that provides low-cost, flexible loans for water infrastructure projects across the country.
WIFIA loans support a wide variety of drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater projects. Eligible borrowers include public entities, private entities, and public-private partnerships. WIFIA loans can support a broad range of project costs, including project planning and design, construction, land and equipment acquisition, and more. Prospective borrowers can apply for and receive a single WIFIA loan or bundle multiple WIFIA loans under a single application for nearly any stage of project completion, including design-only loans.
