State Revolving Fund Incentive Programs

The State Revolving Fund (SRF) Loan Program is pleased to offer four incentive programs, which encourage SRF Loan Program participants to pursue projects that further improve the public and environmental health of Indiana.  Integrating these project components into SRF Financing can lead to a reduced interest rate.

The Current Indiana SRF Incentive Programs are:

Lead Line Replacement Incentive Program, under the DWSRF Loan Program

To be eligible for this program a project must include projects that replace complete lead and galvanize pipe service lines.

By participating a community may be eligible for improved ranking on the SRF Project Priority List and an interest rate as low as 0%.

 The Green Project Reserve Sustainability Incentive Program, under CWSRF and DWSRF Loan Programs

Green projects include sustainable green infrastructure, water or energy efficiency measures, environmentally innovative solutions, or classified as being climate resilient.  Based on the type and cost of the green component, a community may be eligible for improved ranking on the SRF Project Priority List as well as an interest reduction up to 0.5% on its SRF Loan.
