The U.S. EPA is accepting letters of interest (LOIs) for the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) through July 6. The WIFIA program has $5.5 billion in low cost loans available for water and wastewater infrastructure projects, and is intended to accelerate investment in infrastructure. The LOI is the first step of the application process, and if your project is selected, you will then need to prepare a full application. Eligible applicants include local, state, tribal, and federal government entities, partnership and joint ventures, corporations and trusts, and Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs. More information about the application is available in the notice at the bottom of this email.
