Environmental Finance Centers

Environmental Finance Centers (EFCs) are Congressionally-funded, university-based entities dedicated to providing avenues for financial education and training for state and local officials. The EFCs at both the New Mexico Tech and the University of Maryland have developed environmental finance courses for state and local officials. Similarly, the University of North Carolina EFC is developing a modular environmental finance training course. The New Mexico Tech EFC provides U.S./Mexican Border Area environmental infrastructure assistance and assessment and the Boise State University EFC has developed a number of financial tools and provides training on utility rate setting. In addition, EFCs develop and publish case studies about innovative financing techniques, as well as serve as clearinghouses for Regional and state information on environmental financing and program management. Links to all 10 EFCs and further information about how to contact them appears below:

CapCert Connections

ASDWA’s CapCert Connections is for state drinking water program operator certification and capacity development coordinators. Our goal is to share timely, informative articles designed to help make your efforts easier to accomplish; give you insights into what your peers are working on; and keep you up to date with meetings, workshops, and other plan-ahead events. We hope that this blog will encourage greater collaboration between the Capacity Development and Operator Certification programs and enhance the ability of both programs to support drinking water systems across the United States.
