Texas Water Development Board Funding Commitments

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) has been managing loan programs for almost 60 years. From the first loan to build the White River Reservoir in 1958 to the most recent State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT) commitments, the TWDB has been a leader in financing water and wastewater projects throughout the state.

The TWDB's financial assistance programs provide the citizens of Texas with low-cost financial assistance for water-related infrastructure. Projects have spanned the state, from El Paso to Beaumont and Dalhart to Brownsville, providing financing for communities of all sizes to meet their water needs and regulatory requirements with long-term solutions.

As of November 30, 2017, the TWDB has made more than 4,800 financial commitments for a total of approximately $24.5 billion since the agency's inception in 1957. Though the projects range greatly in cost and scope, all have helped communities ensure their economic vitality and well-being. Investing in water is an investment in the future.
