Recently enacted Public Act 132 of 2022 changes the term “disadvantaged” community to “overburdened community,” adds the new term “significantly overburdened community,” and requires the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) to update the definition with input from stakeholders and the public. In addition, the legislation requires EGLE to develop new scoring criteria to prioritize projects for both the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund programs. Online and in-person attendance options are available for this hearing.
