METHODOLOGY:

This bill makes general fund appropriations of $3,652,347 for FY 2020 and $3,781,024 for FY 2021 to the Department of Environmental Services to fund eligible and completed wastewater projects under the state aid program. (RSA 486).  The appropriation amounts are estimated based on eligible wastewater projects known to the Department as of 8/15/2018.  

 

The estimates are based on a 20% state grant, assume 20 year loans, and are calculated on project cost projections.  Some projects may be eligible for a 30% grant and the actual payments will be based on final eligible project costs net of grants received from other sources such as the USDA or principal forgiveness from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).  The Department estimates expenditures will be $3,652,347 in FY 2020, $3,781,024 in FY 2021, $4,850,221, in FY 2022, $4,924,122 in FY 2023 with $79.9 million paid over the remaining 16 years on the loan.  The appropriations for amounts in future fiscal years, after FY 2021, will be included in the Department's biennial operating budget.
