Ohio EPA’s Recycling and Litter Prevention Program (R&LP) provides grant funding to communities and businesses that initiate or expand recycling programs, encourage sustainable practices, and stimulate market development for reusing recyclables and litter prevention efforts.
As a condition of receiving annual capitalization grants that support Ohio’s Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) and Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF), Ohio EPA negotiates a “fair share” goal for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation in projects being funded through each program.
The Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Program Management Plan (PMP) includes guidelines for administration of program funds and project implementation over the program year.
Since 2016, Ohio EPA’s Water Pollution Control Loan Fund has offered local health districts (LHDs) grant-like subsidies to assist low-income homeowners repair and replace failing household sewage treatment systems (HSTS).
Ohio EPA is awarding more than $4 million this year in grant funding to 66 local governments, businesses and nonprofit organizations throughout Ohio to establish and implement general recycling, litter prevention, recycling market development and scrap tire recycling programs.
As part of DEFA’s ongoing efforts to make the most of the limited principal forgiveness funding available every year through our SRF programs, additional focus will be placed on projects that are ready to proceed.
The Program Year (PY) 2020 Drinking Water Assistance Fund (DWAF) Program Management Plan (PMP) became effective on July 1, 2019.
The nomination period for the Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program (WRRSP) is changing this year to Aug. 1 – 31, 2019. This change allows more time for the pre-nomination site visits now required to nominate a project. Another potential change for the WRRSP program in 2020 will involve increased focus on projects that are located in the Western Basin of Lake Erie.
This year, Ohio EPA received a record number of nominations for the Water Supply Revolving Loan Account (WSRLA) – more than 180 projects and more than $400 million for upcoming program year (PY) 2020. This reflects the growing popularity of the WSRLA and the continued, widespread need for drinking water infrastructure improvements. During calendar year 2018, the WSRLA loaned out an all-time-high of more than $233 million in funds for drinking water improvement projects.
