88.20completion of the project would otherwise exceed 1.2 percent of the median household
88.21income of the project service area. In determining whether the average annual residential
88.22drinking water system cost would exceed 1.2 percent, the authority must consider the total
88.23costs associated with building, operating, and maintaining the drinking water system,
88.24including existing drinking water debt service, debt service on the eligible project cost,
88.25and operation and maintenance costs. Debt service costs for the proposed project are
88.26calculated based on the maximum loan term permitted for the drinking water revolving
88.27fund loan under section 446A.081, subdivision 8, paragraph (c). The amount of the grant
88.28is equal to 80 percent of the amount needed to reduce the average annual residential
88.29drinking water system cost to 1.2 percent of median household income in the project
88.30service area, to a maximum of $5,000,000 per project or $20,000 per existing connection,
88.31whichever is less, unless specifically approved by law. The eligible project cost is
88.32determined by multiplying the total project costs minus any other grants by the essential
88.33project component percentage calculated under subdivision 3, paragraph (c), clause (1). In
88.34no case may the amount of the grant exceed 80 percent of the eligible project cost.
