Draft Amendment No. 2 to the FFY 2002 CWSRF Intended Use Plan Revisions to Uses of Funds

The Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2002 Intended Use Plan (IUP) for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) for Water Pollution Control Projects, dated September 2001, is being amended.

The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (“EFC”), together with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (“DEC”), administers the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (“CWSRF”). Since it began operating in 1990, the CWSRF program has made over $6.3 billion in project loans to over 400 municipalities and public agencies for water pollution control projects and has saved these municipalities and agencies millions of dollars through interest rate subsidies.

Funds allocated for CWSRF long-term leveraged financings were $320.4 million which leveraged, would finance $640.9M in projects. The $320.4 million is being reduced by $37.7 million. This amount is based on projects listed on the 2002 IUP Annual Project Priority List for long-term financing (LTF) that have either closed on a short-term financing (STF) (prolonging the need for LTF beyond FFY 2002), did not submit an application for LTF by the March 1, 2002 deadline, or have chosen to delay long-term financing. These funds will be reallocated for use in STF, raising the STF allocation from $308.2 million (stated in final Amendment No.1 dated June 17, 2002) to $345.9 million. This revision will have no effect in the funding of projects listed for long-term financing on the “Annual Project Priority List” that have submitted applications and are proceeding with LTF under the 2002 IUP.

Copies of Draft Amendment No. 2 can be requested by calling the EFC toll-free line at (800) 882-9721 (within NYS only) or at (518) 402-7433. As this amendment does not substantially alter the program, copies of the draft amendment will be mailed to the primary contacts for each municipality who were mailed the final FFY 2002 CWSRF IUP in September 2001. Draft Amendment No. 2 will also be available on the EFC web site at http://www.nysefc.org (click on “What’s New” or “Clean Water”).
