Stormwater Programs

Stormwater Loans

The Virginia Clean Water Revolving Loan Fund (VCWRLF) provides low interest loans to local governments for the construction of facilities or structures or the implementation of best management practices that reduce or prevent pollution of state waters caused by stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces.  Applications for VCWRLF Stormwater Loans will be accepted once each year, concurrent with the program's wastewater facility improvement loan applications, which normally occurs in July.

Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (grant)

In order to reduce non-point source pollution from stormwater runoff, the Virginia General Assembly included Item 360 in Chapter 860 of the Acts of Assembly (the Commonwealth's 2013 - 2014 Budget) which created and set forth specific parameters for the administration of the Stormwater Local Assistance Fund (SLAF).

Applications are being solicited for Non-Point Source Nutrient Credit purchases and stormwater projects including: i) new stormwater best management practices; ii) stormwater best management practice retrofits, iii) stream restoration; iv) low impact development projects, v) buffer restorations, vi) pond retrofits, and vii) wetlands restoration.  Eligible recipients are local governments, meaning any county, city, town, municipal corporation, authority, district, commission, or political subdivision created by the General Assembly or pursuant to the Constitution or laws of the Commonwealth.  Due to the limited amount of funding available this year, any local government that was authorized for SLAF funding in the FY 2014 and FY 2015 funding cycle that have not received construction bids on all remaining authorized 2014 projects and on at least one authorized 2015 project by October 1, 2018 will be ineligible for funding from this (2019) funding cycle.

To be considered for this funding, three (3) completed applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, October 12, 2018 or hand delivered by 5:00 p.m. on October 12, 2018
