Water Resource Information System


Welcome to the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority, or KIA.

Basic infrastructure is a necessity for economic growth. Many of our Kentucky communities do not have the basic water, sewer, solid waste facilities and other infrastructure that they need for their citizens. This is due in large part to the high costs of these services. The Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA) was created in 1988 to provide the mechanism for funding construction of local public works projects. KIA is continually growing and expanding its services. Through the various programs currently offered, KIA has become the answer for local financing needs.

The Kentucky Infrastructure Authority is now administratively attached to DLG, the Department for Local Government.

  • Did you know?  Did you know that KIA offers a loan product specifically for planning and design?  Commonly referred to as a “P&D loan”, a Planning and Design Loan has a set interest rate of 2.75 percent with a loan term of 5 years (interest rate subject to change annually).  Depending on funding availability, priority funding for the subsequent construction project may be offered after the planning and design for the project is complete. P&D loans may be consolidated or “rolled” into a construction loan for the same project and will convert to the construction loan interest rate.  Contact the loan staff at KIA for more information.
