Draft Amendment No. 2 to the FFY 2011 CWSRF Intended Use Plan
Smart Growth Requirements

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) announce that the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2011 Intended Use Plan (IUP) for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF), dated October 2010, is being amended.

NYS EFC is seeking comment on the NYS EFC Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Program as presented in 2011 CWSRF IUP Amendment No. 2.

This draft amendment to the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Intended Use Plan (IUP) for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2011 includes information regarding the implementation of the NYS EFC Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Program as a result of the adoption of the Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Policy Act (SGPIPA) (Environmental Conservation Law Sections 6-0101 - 6-0111) and addresses its application to NYS EFC financings.

Additionally, in the final 2011 CWSRF IUP, EFC presented lists of projects with the corresponding financing amounts that are seeking CWSRF financial assistance in FFY 2011 (the Annual Project Priority List (PPL)). For those projects that proceed to the point of receiving financial assistance in FFY 2011, NYS EFC will make a determination with regard to each project's adherence to the State Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Criteria as presented in SGPIPA. NYS EFC is seeking comment on whether the projects listed on the 2011 PPL have been developed in accordance with the State Smart Growth Public Infrastructure Criteria.

The Draft Amendment No. 2 will be available on the NYS EFC website at: www.efc.ny.gov.

Written comments on Amendment No. 2 to the CWSRF IUP will be accepted by mail, e-mail, or fax until close of business, Monday, April 18, 2011. Comments should be addressed to:

New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Draft Amendment No. 1 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund FFY 2011 Intended Use Plan

Project Financing Adjustment

Overview
The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) propose to amend the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated October 1, 2010.

This draft amendment will add (19) projects onto the 2011 IUP Readiness List. The projects were originally financed as a part the: 1998A, 1998B, 1998E, 2000A, 2000B and 2001A bond series leveraged financings and are being added to the Readiness List so that they can be converted to direct financings (deleveraged) as a part of refunding those bond series.

When a DWSRF bond series is refunded, the series may contain certain projects, particularly where the community has nearly repaid their financing, where conversion to direct financings is more economically advantageous. The conversion to direct financings (deleveraging) of projects requires the use of funds, and, therefore, the projects need to be included on the IUP Readiness List. The 2011 IUP is therefore being amended to add these projects to the IUP Readiness List. All of the projects being added to the IUP Readiness List are projects that previously received financing from the DWSRF. There are no new projects being added to the Readiness List. The refunding of the previously issued bond series' result in interest rate savings to the communities due to the lower rates available at this time and frees up encumbered unspent funds for the program. The funds required to convert these projects to direct financings will come from those funds freed up through the NYS EFC Bond refunding (series 2011A).

Projects to be Deleveraged

The projects being converted to direct financings (deleveraged) and being added to the readiness list for that purpose are:
