Onsite Stormwater Loan Program

Information and Loan Application Documents


The Ohio Water Development Authority Board created the Onsite Stormwater Loan Program in 2012. Through this program, OWDA can provide financial assistance for stormwater management projects that focus on treating stormwater at its source to minimize, avoid, or offset impacts on water resources and reduce flow to sewers or surface waters.  

For more details, see the Onsite Stormwater Loan Program Guidelines. Please note that projects must be constructed using prevailing wage.    

Applications are accepted on an open cycle.  OWDA will begin to review a project after a complete application has been received.  Your application will be presented to the OWDA Board for approval after it has been determined that the applicant has the ability to repay the loan.
