The DNREC Environmental Finance Office administers the Delaware Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund (also known as the Clean Water State Revolving Fund), making funding available to municipalities, private organizations, nonprofit organizations and private individuals.
The Environmental Finance Office provides planning, engineering and financial assistance in the form of low-interest loans and grants to eligible applicants that request assistance to promote water quality projects which protect natural resources and reduce the risk of pollution from septic tanks, underground storage tanks and other activities. These include all types of non-point source, watershed protection, restoration, and estuary management projects, as well as more traditional municipal wastewater treatment projects.
The Environmental Finance Office provides administrative services to the Delaware Water Infrastructure Advisory Council. It works in partnership with the DHSS Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.
