New Program Helps Communities Plug the Hole in Water Resource Planning

Each year, the State of Illinois makes hundreds of millions of dollars available in the form of low-interest loans to public water system operators across the state to fund system improvement projects.  In fiscal year 2021, for instance, $350 million was made available through the state’s Public Water Supply Loan Program.
