Recent Awards - State Revolving Fund

The Florida State Revolving Fund Program is providing these announcements to enhance public awareness and understanding of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's State Revolving Fund (USEPA SRF) assistance programs. This important funding helps provide loans and grants for projects that improve the quality and quantity of water resources of the state and provide a significant benefit to the environment and local communities.

These funds combined with state funding help improve stormwater quality, reduce pollutants that enter surface water and groundwater, protect springs, collect and treat wastewater, distribute reclaimed water, produce and distribute drinking water,and also conserve water and subsidize innovative and green water-related projects.

Recent CWSRF and DWSRF loan awards and increases are provided by the month awarded along with information about the SRF program with links.
