EPA allocates $2.4B for 2023 Clean Water State Revolving Fund

Feb. 27, 2023
Funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has boosted grant and loan funding through the nation’s 2023 CWSRF, which will support water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure improvements.

The U.S. EPA has announced over $2.4 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law through this year’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).

The funding will support communities in upgrading their water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure. Nearly half of this funding will be available as grants or principal forgiveness loans helping underserved communities.

The $2.4 billion is the second wave of funding made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. In May 2022, EPA announced the initial allotment of $1.9 billion from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to states, Tribes and territories through the CWSRF.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law makes over $50 billion available for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements across the country between FY2022 and FY2026.
