State Dam Loan/Grant Funding Program  

Maryland has funding programs to assist dam owners with repair, abandonment, or removal of dams.

Loan programs include the Water Quality Revolving Loan Fund (WQRLF) and Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund (DWRLF).

More information on these loan programs can be found on the Maryland Water Quality Financing Administration (WQFA) page. Maryland is also currently working with the Governor's office and State Comptroller to establish a dam repair fund.
