Principal forgiveness (PF) for loan recipients continues in 2016!

  • Subsidy from the 2016 capitalization grant will be pooled with uncommitted allotments from previous grants to distribute the maximum financial benefit statewide. While funds are available, this will include up to 20% principal forgiveness on qualifying stormwater and NPS projects.
  • In addition, while funds are available, the CWSRF is offering up to $30,000 in principal forgiveness towards the development of an asset management program for wastewater or stormwater assets!
