New Consolidated Application for DEFA’s Water and Wastewater Loans

DEFA’s Office of Financial Assistance (OFA) is offering a new user-friendly consolidated loan application. In the past, separate applications for each type of project within the WPCLF and WSRLA were required, sometimes resulting in multiple separate applications and some confusion about what information and which application was needed.

Tips On Getting a Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance (DEFA) Loan

Getting a low-interest loan from Ohio EPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund Program (WPCLF) or from the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) can go faster by understanding the who, what, when and how of the loan application process.

DEFA’s Program Management Plans (PMPs)

Ohio’s State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs are the Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) and the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA). Each has a program year — the WPCLF cycle is January 1 – December 31, while the WSRLA cycle is the state fiscal year, July 1 – June 30. Each program receives an annual capitalization grant from U.S. EPA. One of the conditions of the grant funding is that Ohio EPA produce a Program Management Plan (PMP) for each program.
