This training is for drinking water systems interested in investigating financing options for infrastructure projects. The workshop will include presentations from the public funding programs in the state. There will also be a “one-stop-shop” for individual communication with the staff that manage these funding programs. Presentations will also focus on how multiple programs can fund different parts of one utility project.

While operators are welcome, this training is best suited for individuals who make financial decisions for the water system.
