The United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) Office of Inspector General (“OIG”) issued an October 20th Project Notification titled:
Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Loan Subsidies to Disadvantaged Communities (“Notification”)
See Project No. OA-FY22-0020.
The Notification is transmitted from Michael D. Davis, Director, OIG Environmental Investment and Infrastructure Directorate, Office of Audit to Radhika Fox, EPA Assistant Administrator, Office of Water.
OIG is initiating an audit of drinking water state revolving fund loan subsidies to disadvantaged communities.
OIG states the two objectives are to determine to what extent:
- States have met their drinking water state revolving fund loan subsidy goals for disadvantaged communities as identified in their intended-use plans.
- The EPA has identified and addressed barriers, if any, that hindered states from spending the maximum allowed on loan subsidies for disadvantaged communities in their drinking water state revolving funds.
OIG states it will conduct the audit primarily working with the Office of Water and at certain EPA regions and states.
