Draft Amendment No. 4 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2015 Intended Use Plan (IUP)

FFY 2015 Intended Use Plan Amendments:

DWSRF#17645 Greenwich (V), Washington County - The project cost listed in the DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) is increased by $200,000 to reflect the project's additional required costs beyond what was provided in the short term market rate financing. In accordance with the Section 4.2.6 of the IUP, this project is also now eligible for a subsidized interest rate financing.

DWSRF#18153 Wallkill (T), Orange County - The IUP listed cost for this DWSRF Storm Mitigation Loan Program project is increased by an amount up to but not to exceed an additional $75,000 to more accurately reflect the anticipated project cost.

In addition to the project specific amendments cited above, the estimated federal capitalization grant for FFY 2015 is amended to $42,455,000 and the Set Aside amounts in Table 2 of the IUP will be adjusted to reflect this change. The percentage of the federal capitalization grant being made available for additional subsidy is also amended from twenty percent to "up to thirty percent". Any increase in additional subsidy resulting from this change will be provided if needed to eligible projects that applied for hardship prior to the December 1, 2014 hardship application deadline.

The New York State Department of Health has determined that the amendments are necessary, reasonable, and in the interest of protecting public health. The amendments will not adversely affect any project on the IUP Project Annual List above the subsidized funding line. Except as noted above, there are no other changes to the IUP as a result of this Amendment No. 4 of the FFY 2015 IUP.
