Kansas State Revolving Fund Loan Applications
The Kanas State Revolving Fund (Kansas SRF) program has 2 different statutory loan programs - the Kansas Public Water Supply Loan Fund or drinking water infrastructure and the Kansas Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund for wastewater infrastructure. For the municipality to be eligible for a loan from either one of these programs, it must first be listed on the Project Priority List found in the corresponding program's Intended Use Plan. A pre-application form must be submitted to the KDHE Bureau of Water to receive consideration for inclusion on the Project Priority List.
All drinking water funding programs require the municipality to adopt and implement a Water Conservation Plan consistent with guidelines (PDF) developed by the Kansas Water Office. For more information on obtaining and implementing a water conservation plan, contact the Kansas Water Office at 785-296-3185.
