Do you know about financial resources available for homeowners? Low-interest loans for septic system replacements and sewer-tie ins are available in a number of municipalities through the Community Septic System Loan Program (CSSLP) and the Sewer Tie-In Loan Fund (STILF). We recently added important information on both programs to our Homeownership website
