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.

The State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs are low interest loan programs for drinking water, wastewater, stormwater or nonpoint source infrastructure projects. Examples include: water and sewer line replacements and extensions, new water storage tanks, tank refurbishment, treatment projects, and much more! Our loan terms consist of 20-30 year terms with competitive interest rates. Interest rates are set annually and have not been established for the 2018 funding cycle, however, current interest rates range from 0.25 percent to 2.75 percent.
If you are interested in receiving funding from either SRF loan program, you must coordinate with your Area Development District Planner to prepare an electronic Project Profile. Information contained in the Project Profile will be used by the Division of Water to score and rank projects based on the published set of criteria.
After the Call for Projects closes in December, the Division of Water scores all of the projects submitted for consideration and prepares a Project Priority List. This list is released in May of each year as part of the Intended Use Plan or IUP. Projects are funded in ranked priority order.
If you have questions about completing the Project Profile or project eligibility for priority list inclusion, please contact Anshu Singh (email@example.com) or Jory Becker (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the Water Infrastructure Branch of the DOW, or call (502) 564-3410. For more information on loan requirements, terms or eligibility contact Brandi Norton (email@example.com) of the KIA, or call (502) 573-0260.
The WRIS (Water Resource Information System) Portal is designed to bring together information from a multitude of sources and display that information in one easy to use web application. The Portal is linked to databases at the Kentucky Department of Water, Kentucky Department for Local Government, the Kentucky Public Service Commission, Kentucky Department of Education, Kentucky Department of Parks, and the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.
