The Department of Environmental Services indicates this bill makes appropriations to the Department for the purpose of making payments to communities for projects that have previously been awarded state aid grant funding. These grants were awarded for eligible and completed wastewater infrastructure projects under the state aid grant program and were approved by the governor and executive council. The bill allows any remaining funds to be used to award new grants.
The Department has estimated a cost of $12,362,390 in FY 2024 and $15,496,220 in FY 2025 to make payments for existing state aid grant awards that have been approved by the Governor and Executive Council. These amounts are included in the Department's "Prioritized Need Request" in the FY 2024-2025 operating budget request. The Department assumes if these amounts are approved in the operating budget, any additional appropriation would be used for new grants.
The 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.
