AUSTIN – (July 27, 2022) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of $18,110,000 from the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas (SWIFT)* program to the Greenbelt Municipal and Industrial Water Authority (Donley County). The Authority will use the assistance for the planning, acquisition, design, and construction of a water supply project.

The Authority could save approximately $2,900,000 over the life of the loan by using the SWIFT program.
