FEDERAL FUNDING

CIFA advocates for increased federal funding for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs), the nation's premier programs for funding water infrastructure that protects public health and the environment. 

 

2023 Budget 

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023, (H.R. 2617), became law on Thursday, December 29, 2022. Congress maintained top line funding for the SRFs but continued to use the SRF capitalization grants to pay for earmarks which are listed in the Explanatory Statement (starting on page 80).

Using the SRF funding to pay for earmarks cuts funding for state water projects.

Over the last two years, Congress has cut $2.3 billion or 42% in annual federal funding for state SRF projects to pay for earmarks. 35 states and Puerto Rico experienced a net cut in federal funding (state SRF projects plus congressional earmarks) for water infrastructure.
