State Revolving Fund

The State Revolving Funds provide low-interest loans to municipalities, counties, public water and public sewer districts and political subdivisions for wastewater and drinking water infrastructure projects.  The State Revolving Fund is a federally capitalized, low-interest loan program.  Projects may be new construction or the improvement or renovation of existing facilities.

There are several programs offered through State Revolving Fund:

  • The Direct Loan Program is offered to small communities that do not qualify for a leveraged loan program.  Direct loans may be offered to larger communities on a case-by-case basis.
  • The Small Borrower Loan Program is available only to communities or public sewer districts of less than 1,000 population or service area. Qualifying communities or public sewer districts may be considered for a direct loan for wastewater system improvements for up to $100,000 with a maximum 20-year repayment term.
  • The nonpoint source loan program is offered to qualifying individual farmers with animal waste treatment needs through the Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority.

State Grant and Loan Programs

Pending sufficient state revenue sources, rural sewer grants, rural drinking water grants and 40 percent state construction grants may also be available.

The department currently is funding two separate on-site wastewater funding programs. These programs can provide grant and loan opportunities to individual homeowners who have a failed or failing on-site wastewater treatment systems.
