The DEQ Onsite Financial Aid Program supports programs to improve public health and water quality by providing grants and low-cost loans to address failing septic systems. OSFAP will utilize $15 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds that the 2021 Oregon legislature allocated to DEQ. The legislature also prioritized the use of these funds for 2020 wildfire recovery.
OSFAP awards pass through grants to public agencies and qualified organizations to provide funding to property owners within their service area. For more information regarding eligibility for ARPA funding and projects, see our Organizational Frequently Asked Questions.
Property owners who are looking for funding options for their personal or small business systems should check Financial Assistance for Homeowners and Small Businesses.
