Water Pollution Control Emergency Loan Fund (WPCELF) Program

This program is funded by the state; therefore, no federal funds or federal mandates are required. This emergency program is designed to provide limited, low-interest, shorter-term loan assistance for emergency repairs, replacement and improvements that cannot wait for a regular funding cycle. The loan terms and funding limitations are not quite as attractive as in the other state revolving fund (SRF) loan programs, but the planning and time required is considerably less. The intent of the fund is to provide monies to communities in a timely manner to handle emergencies. For more information, click here to view the Construction Branch Staff Directory.
