Utah WQ SRF IUP
The primary purpose of the Plan is to identify current and projected projects that may be awarded funding from federal grant awards. The federal award for FY19 is estimated to be $8,443,000. Similar to other states, Green Project Reserve is a focal point of the IUP, and additional subsidization is provided to disadvantaged communities. For the Water Quality Board to qualify a community as disadvantaged, the community must have a demonstrated hardship based on its cost of sewer service relative to 1.4% of the MAGI, unemployment, poverty level, or economic trends. Utah short term goals include the collaboration with other agencies (e.g., Utah Permanent Community Impact Board, U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) to sufficiently fund projects. The IUP also aims to solicit and fund eligible nonpoint source and storm water projects, and assist communities with all phases of a project, including sufficient planning, project design, environmental work, and construction.
