TDEC’s Clean Water Intended Use Plan is the state’s planning document detailing how the federal fiscal year (FFY) appropriations for the CWSRF loan program will be used. The State of Tennessee’s allotment of FFY dollars for the CWSRF Loan Program changes from year to year. The State is required to provide a 20% State match of federal funds based on the projected FFY capitalization grant. The EPA capitalization grant plus the State match provides the bulk of project loan funds in a typical year. Projects may also be funded from the SRF revolving base dollars. These funds are used for both project loan funds and non-project funds (allowed under Title VI of the Clean Water Act (CWA)) to further the protection of public health and the environment objectives of the CWA. In addition, Tennessee’s CWSRF Loan Program has developed a small and disadvantaged community principal forgiveness program that sets aside funds for disadvantaged communities with an Ability to Pay of less than 50%.
