The SRF program requires a detailed study of problems and recommendations for necessary improvements to be developed and submitted to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) for review and approval by July 1st of each year. Costs accrued with the development of the Project plan and identification of potential sources of I & I (inflow & Infiltration) of clear water in the sanitary sewer system are eligible to receive a 90% grant with a10% local match.

Following the design, the SRF Loan Program MUST fund the recommended improvement through a low interest Bond. Typical rates for the loan is 1 1/2 % to 2 1/2 %. If the Village of Maybee does not finance the improvement through the SRF Loan program then the S2 grant money must be repaid.
