Clean Water Financing

Priority System, Intended Use Plan, and Project Priority List

In the Water Quality Act of 1987, which amended the Clean Water Act (CWA), Congress required states to establish a Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) program to qualify for federal capitalization grants. The CWSRF provides financial assistance for the construction of projects that protect, maintain and improve water quality. Established in 1988, New Jersey's CWSRF program is included in the Environmental Infrastructure Financing Program (EIFP). The EIFP is a partnership between the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust (Trust) providing low-interest loans for infrastructure projects.

Every year the DEP develops a "Proposed Priority System, Intended Use Plan, and Project Priority List" as required by federal and State law. After the public has had an opportunity to comment on the DEPís proposal, the DEP submits a final "Priority System, Intended Use Plan, Project Priority List, and Response Document" to USEPA for its approval. The Priority System (PS) describes the ranking methodology for the municipal water pollution control projects that are eligible for financial assistance through the EIFP. The Intended Use Plan (IUP) provides information on funds available through the clean water component of the EIFP, including all federal funds allotted to the State under the CWA and available to the CWSRF. The Priority List identifies projects targeted for financial assistance from the CWSRF and identifies the estimated total eligible building costs under the appropriate project category.
