We manage and provide money for water, wastewater, and stormwater projects in Colorado. We have different tools to help entities find the right kind of money for each project. We offer additional help in the form of training, guidance, and project management. Our project managers are assigned to specific areas of Colorado to help each project stay on track and on budget.

Grants

Grant money does not need to be paid back and can come from different programs. We have several state grant programs to help fund water, wastewater, and stormwater projects.

Low-interest loans

We offer loans with very low-interest rates so that they are affordable to pay back. Our partners help us determine how best to assist each community with funding options. These loans come from the Drinking Water and Water Pollution Control Revolving Funds.

State Revolving Fund (SRF) agencies will partner with our Local Assistance Unit (LAU) as much as possible to share
information about funding options during applicable LAU training. The SRF will work with existing community outreach efforts to strengthen existing project pipelines.

The LAU is holding three in-person resilience workshops in 2022 and has offered the SRF a session in each to discuss funding options.

Register below for "building resilience in your water/wastewater system" training events occurring in September and December. 

The training events aim to: 

  • Create, implement, and build upon your emergency management plans.
  • Improve your system’s security measures.
  • Take stock of your current financial situation.
  • Plan for your financial future. 
  • Navigate State Revolving Fund (SRF) funding opportunities.

Training units will be issued for these courses.
