The Massachusetts Clean Water Trust

The Massachusetts Clean Water Trust (the Trust) is a state agency that improves water quality throughout the Commonwealth by providing low-interest loans to municipalities and other eligible entities.

About the Trust

The Trust, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), helps communities build or replace water infrastructure that enhances ground and surface water resources, ensures the safety of drinking water, protects public health and develops resilient communities. It accomplishes these objectives by providing low-interest loans and grants to cities, towns and water utilities through the Massachusetts State Revolving Funds (SRFs). SRFs function like an environmental infrastructure bank by financing water infrastructure projects.

The Trust administers two SRF programs, the Clean Water and Drinking Water SRFs. MassDEP manages project development and oversight while the Trust manages the flow of funds to borrowers. The SRF programs are partnerships between the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Commonwealth. To date, the Trust has financed approximately $8.1 billion for nearly three hundred borrowers, serving 97% of the Commonwealth’s population.

Upcoming Bond Sale

The Massachusetts Clean Water Trust is preparing to issue State Revolving Fund Bonds and State Revolving Fund Refunding Bonds during the week of November 28th. View the Preliminary Official Statement and related documents here.
