Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Program

Intended Use Plan for FY 2023

Dear Waterworks Owner and Other Interested Parties:

Under the Safe Drinking Water Act, Congress authorizes capitalization grants to the states through the Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund Program (DWSRF).  As part of the annual DWSRF grant application process, Virginia seeks meaningful public involvement through input, review and comments.  The Virginia Department of Health’s Office of Drinking Water (ODW) prepared a draft Intended Use Plan (IUP) that explains the goals of the program, funding priorities, how ODW intends to use the grant funds and other important information submitted from the funding requests and set-aside suggestions.

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) received several funding requests and set-aside suggestions following the February 2022 and 2023 DWSRF funding solicitation announcement.  The draft IUP and draft project lists are open for review and comment by the public for a period of 30 days and it is available on the ODW website.

A Public Meeting will not be held, but written comments and recommendations regarding the IUP will be accepted until Monday, October 9, 2023, at 5:00 pm.  VDH considers all meaningful public input and comments and will revise the IUP and project priority list if necessary.  Please direct your request for information and forward written comments to:
