EPA’s Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center just released its Water Finance Clearinghouse. This searchable database of over 550 resources will help communities identify important financing mechanisms for stormwater, wastewater and drinking water infrastructure. In addition to information on financing, the database contains reports, web pages and webinars.

Access the database!.

It will be updated in real time, using a crowdsourcing model in which users and other stakeholders can suggest new resources. The Washington Stormwater Center participated in the beta-testing of earlier versions of this Clearinghouse. Tanyalee Erwin, Assistant Director of the Center, said this resource will become an important tool for Washington municipalities addressing stormwater infrastructure needs. “I hope Washington municipalities help to crowdsource this database to build Washington State resources” said Erwin.The database contains more than $10 billion in water funding sources.EPA webinars on how to use the Clearinghouse are scheduled for:

  • July 31
  • August 3
  • August 14
  • August 18
