CIFA advocates for increased federal funding for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs), the nation's premier programs for financing water infrastructure that protects public health and the environment.
The 2020 Budget (H.R. 1865) became law on Friday, December 20.
Clean Water State Revolving Fund: $1,638,826,000 ($1.6 billion), 10% of which is mandated for green infrastructure and 10% of which is mandated for additional subsidization
Drinking Water State Revolving Fund: $1,126,088,000 ($1.1 billion), 20% of which is mandated for additional subsidization (including 14% in the appropriations bill and 6% in the Safe Drinking Water Act)
WIFIA for SRFs (SWIFIA / SRF WIN): $5 million for state financing authorities which could provide as much as $500 million in loans from the U.S. Treasury
WIFIA: $50 million for all projects
CIFA advocated for full funding of the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds to the U.S. House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies.
CIFA also issued a policy position on the need to return flexibility to states in providing additional subsidization - Funding Forever: Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds.
