States have funds to help make sure drinking water is safe and affordable, but change is needed to make sure the money goes to people who really need it.
The Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) is how the state governments help communities pay for drinking water projects. This can include replacing lead pipes or getting a new water treatment plant, which are very expensive yet necessary for keeping drinking water safe. A community can apply annually to the DWSRF to receive a long-term loan or a grant from the Department of Natural Resources.
