CWSRF Funding Process Virtual Workshop Series
Join experts from the Environmental Finance Center Network for a no-cost webinar series on the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). This monthly series is intended to help you better understand the CWSRF funding process.
Sessions will be held on the third Thursday every month (excluding December 2023 which will be held on Tuesday, December 19).
February 16, 2023 | Session 2: The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law brought a massive influx of money to the State Revolving Fund programs: $12.7 billion for Clean Water and $35.7 billion for Drinking Water. With this new money also come regulations to support communities who might previously have been unable to secure SRF funds for critical infrastructure improvements and environmental protection. In session 2 of our CWSRF webinar series, we will discuss what these changes mean, particularly for disadvantaged and low-income communities, and what these communities should expect from SRF loans and grants.
Presenters: Heather Himmelberger, Director; and Shannon Pepper, Research Scientist, Southwest Environmental Finance Center
