METHODOLOGY:

This bill makes an appropriation to the Department of Environmental services for eligible and completed wastewater projects approved on or before June 30, 2024.  The Department estimated payments would be $12,362,390 in FY 2024 and $15,496,220 in FY 2025 for the maintenance payments on existing State Aid Grant awards that have been approved by the Governor and Council.  These amounts have been included in the Department's operating budget request for FY 2024 and FY 2025 as an additional "Prioritized Need Request".  There will be similar expenditures in FY 2026 and future years for the projects that have been completed and approved.  These grants, provided by the State pursuant to RSA 486, cover annual payments of 20 percent of the principal and interest for 20 years on the eligible costs of acquisition and construction of sewage disposal facilities by municipalities.
