On July 26, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a press release announcing the public launch of the Water Finance Clearinghouse. The tool, developed by EPA’s Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center, will offer communities easy and efficient access to water infrastructure finance information.

The Clearinghouse is an easily navigable web-based portal to help communities locate information and resources that will assist them in making informed decisions for their drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure needs. States, federal agencies, and other water sector stakeholders have the ability to suggest edits, new resources, or funding options at any time through the portal. Stakeholders can use this interactive feature to manage how their programs and initiatives are displayed in the Clearinghouse.
