UST Loan and Grant Program


“I need financial help for UST cleanup.”

Loan and Grant Program

Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Financial Management has provided guidance on state Capital Budget Projects. Please read the recent memorandums to determine if there will be impacts to your project.


The Loan and Grant Program was established by the Legislature in 2016. There are currently 74 sites in the program. Of these, 43 have completed a Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA), 6 have started cleanup and construction, and 2 have received no further action letters. PLIA has provided $8,866,953 of financial assistance. There are 26 sites waiting to receive a financial offer and begin the cleanup construction phase.

Featured Site: Seaview Mobil, Pacific County, WA

PLIA has temporarily stopped accepting applications after March 2, 2020, so that we can better serve current program participants.


PLIA will schedule an intake meeting with applicants accepted into the program to discuss project goals.

PLIA will conduct a Preliminary Planning Assessment (PPA) at each accepted site to gather technical data and develop project cost estimates.

An applicant will receive a financial offer after completion of the PPA.

Upon accepting the offer, PLIA will provide technical oversight through the Petroleum Technical Assistance Program (PTAP).

Loan Repayment

Loan repayments begin thirty (30) days following the payment of the first invoice by PLIA.
