EPA Releases Memo on DWSRF Financing Terms Greater Than 30 Years

On Monday, February 3rd, EPA released a memo on DWSRF financing terms greater than 30 years. This memo replaces an earlier EPA memo on financing terms greater than 20 years that was issued in 2014. This revision is in accordance with amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) through America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) of 2018. The memo provides some details on two scenarios under DWSRF may provide financing terms greater than 30 years: direct loans and the purchase/refinancing of municipal debt.
