Abstract: The Clean Water State Revolving Funds (CWSRF) were established by the 1987 amendments to the Clean Water Act (CWA) as a financial assistance program for a widerange of wastewater infrastructure and other water quality projects. The 1987 amendments added Title VI to the CWA, enabling EPA to provide grants to all 50 states and Puerto Rico to capitalize CWSRFs. The CWSRFs can provide loans and other forms of assistance for a wide array of projects, including construction of wastewater treatments facilities, green infrastructure projects, agricultural best management practices, and water and energy efficiency improvements. Eligible borrowers of CWSRF funding range from municipalities to nonprofit organizations and other private entities. In 2014, Title VI of the CWA was amended by the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). Additional information about the CWSRFs is available at https:// www.epa.gov/cwsrf/learn-about-cleanwater-state-revolving-fund-cwsrf. This ICR renews the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Number 2040–0118 CWSRF ICR and provides updated estimates of the reporting burden associated with the information collection activities. The individual information collections covered under this ICR are briefly described as follows: Capitalization Grant Agreement/ Intended Use Plan The Capitalization Grant Agreement is the principal instrument by which a CWSRF commits to manage its revolving fund program in conformity with the requirements of the CWA. The grant agreement contains or incorporates by reference the intended use plan, application materials, required certifications, and other documentation required by the EPA. The intended use plan describes how a CWSRF program intends to use its funds for the upcoming year to meet the objectives of the CWA. Annual Report The annual report indicates how the CWSRF has met its goals and objectives of the previous state fiscal year as stated in the grant agreement and, more specifically, in the intended use plan. The report provides information on loan recipients, loan amounts, loan terms, project categories of eligible costs, and E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1
