Program Year 2020
The State Infrastructure Program assists local communities in financing local public infrastructure improvements. District One has approximately $29,486,000 in OPWC funding, available through the State Capital Improvement Program and Revolving Loan Program, and the Local Transportation Improvement Program in PY 2020.
- The State Capital Improvement Program (SCIP)
A combined grant/loan program based on funding from general obligation bonds. SCIP funds will cover up to 90% of a project’s total cost if it is a repair or replacement project. New and expansion projects will be funded up to 50% of the total project’s cost.
- Revolving Loan Program (RLP)
As SCIP loans are repaid, those funds are set aside for the RLP. The loans are interest-free and the term based on the useful life of the infrastructure. Applicants can request up to 100% funding in the form of a loan.Infrastructure improvement projects eligible for SCIP Assistance include:
- Stormwater and sanitary collection, storage and treatment facilities
- Water supply and distribution systems
- Wastewater treatment systems
- Local Transportation Improvement Program (LTIP)
A grant program for roads and bridge projects only, based on funding provided from gasoline taxes.
There are many changes to the PY 2020 SCIP/LTIP evaluation criteria. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend a workshop to learn about methodology changes, policy updates, and how to apply for funding from the State Infrastructure Programs.
