WIFIA-SRF Workshop


Financing Solutions for Water Infrastructure

This AWWA workshop brings together finance professionals to discuss ways the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA), Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRF), and other programs can work together to help utilities solve their water infrastructure financing challenges. Interactive sessions with financing thought leaders from within and outside the water sector will engage attendees and foster the exchange of ideas on these critical topics.
