The Drinking Water and Clean Water Program Manuals provide all of the necessary forms (Request for Inclusion, Loan Application, Disbursement Request, etc.), example documents (adopting resolutions, planning document, etc.), and checklists (procurment, planning requirements, etc.) needed to navigate through the SRF process.
Each year DEP must submit a request to receive federal funding for the Drinking Water SRF and Clean Water SRF Programs (called an EPA Capacity or "Cap" Grant). Part of this request is the submittal of an intended use plan (IUP) which details the operation of Florida's SRF programs and how the requested funds, including the 20 percent required state match from the Florida legislative budget and any other monies earned by the program (repaid loans and interest), will be spent. For question about any of the following documents, please contact the appropriate SRF Program Administrator.
At the end of the federal fiscal year, which runs from October 1 through September 30, DEP submits an annual report to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for both the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) and Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Programs on activities and funds expended that state fiscal year (FY), which runs from July 1 through June 31.
For more information on other funding sources and other fact sheets, go to the Division of Water Restoration Assistance's Funding Publications and Resources webpage. For guidance on Davis-Bacon and American Iron and Steel (AIS) requirements, see the SRF Program Manuals above.
