New Consolidated Application for DEFA’s Water and Wastewater Loans

DEFA’s Office of Financial Assistance (OFA) is offering a new user-friendly consolidated loan application. In the past, separate applications for each type of project within the WPCLF and WSRLA were required, sometimes resulting in multiple separate applications and some confusion about what information and which application was needed.

Composting and Ohio’s Food Scrap Recovery Initiative

Did you know an average household throws away around 474 pounds of food waste each year? If food scraps from every home in Ohio were piled on a football field, it would reach as high as the Willis Tower (former Sears Tower) in Chicago - more than 1,450 feet! If we pile food scraps from all households in the United States on a football field, it would be more than five miles (26,400 feet) high!
