Federal Recovery Act - Water and Wastewater Utilities
Water and Wastewater Utilities
Funding is provided to capitalize Wisconsin’s existing Safe Drinking Water and Clean Water revolving loan funds,
which are administered through the
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. A portion of the funding under these programs must be made available
as grants, and a portion of the funding is reserved specifically for “green infrastructure,” energy
efficiency, and water efficiency projects. In addition, funding is provided to the USDA Rural Utilities Service for
direct loans and grants for rural community water, wastewater, and solid waste disposal programs. Eligible entities
include municipal governments, counties, special purpose districts, Indian Tribes, and cooperative or other nonprofit
organizations with a service area under 10,000 in population.

efficiency projects, e-mail Jeff Ripp.
