Is WIFIA Funding Currently Available?
When EPA receives its appropriation, the WIFIA program issues a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) to solicit letters of interest from prospective borrowers seeking financing from EPA.
- $5 million for approximately $500 million in loans exclusively to State infrastructure financing authority borrowers under the State infrastructure financing authority WIFIA (SWIFIA) program
- $50 million for approximately $5 billion in loans to all eligible borrowers under the WIFIA base program
EPA estimates that it will publish a NOFA for both the base program and SWIFIA program in May 2020. This timing is necessary due to the additional requirements mandated by the Appropriations Act, which must be completed prior to issuing the 2020 NOFA.
