Water Finance Clearinghouse
Water Finance Clearinghouse
The Water Finance Clearinghouse is a web‐based portal that can help communities locate information and resources to inform on decisions about drinking water,
wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure needs.
The Water Finance Clearinghouse has two searchable databases: Funds and Resources. The Funds database contains potential funding sources for water infrastructure.
The Resources database contains resources such as reports, case studies, and webinars about financing mechanisms and approaches that can help communities access
capital to meet their water infrastructure needs. The Clearinghouse also hosts Water Finance learning modules which provide information on different financing sources
and funding topics related to water infrastructure investments.
The Water Finance Clearinghouse was developed by
EPA’s Water Infrastructure Finance and Resiliency Center, an information and assistance center
identifying water infrastructure financing approaches that help communities
reach their public health and environmental goals.
