UST Loan and Grant Program

UST

“I need financial help for UST cleanup.”

Beginning March 2, 2020 PLIA temporarily closed the application cycle so that we can better serve current program participants.

About the Program

The UST Loan and Grant Program was established in 2016 to provide financial assistance to owners and operators seeking to:

  • Upgrade underground storage tank systems.
  • Clean up contamination.
  • Install alternative fueling infrastructure.

Process

After receiving a completed application and being accepted into the program, PLIA meets with you to discuss project goals. A grant award of up to $150,000 is available for each accepted site to conduct a Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA). A PLIA-assigned consultant conducts the PPA by gathering technical data and developing project cost estimates. A financial offer is presented after PPA completion and review. The financial award amount is based on underwriting determination. Applicants agree to use all funds under their financial assurance, including insurance funds from PLIA’s UST reinsurance program, prior to receiving program funding.

PLIA provides technical oversight through the Petroleum Technical Assistance Program (PTAP) if the Participant seeks an opinion on the cleanup.
