EPA Water Finance Clearinghouse

EPA’s Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center developed this Water Finance Clearinghouse which is designed to support communities in financing sustainable drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure solutions. This online portal includes two searchable databases: one of available funding sources from for water infrastructure, and the second offers resources related to financing mechanisms for community-level water infrastructure.  Many funding programs listed address water supply resilience, sustainability and climate change adaptation measures. 

The funding database is categorized by Sector, and over 400 financial resources are available related to Green Infrastructure and/or Stormwater Infrastructure. The funding site can also be searched by “Eligible Uses” including:

  • Capital projects
  • Conservation
  • Contaminated site remediation
  • Green projects
  • Home repairs
  • Operations and maintenance
  • Planning and pre-development
  • Resiliency and hazard mitigation
  • Watershed protection

The site also hosts three Water Finance Learning Modules which are finance guides with information on funding and financing options to support communities’ water infrastructure decision-making. These step-by-step modules focus on:

  1. Drinking Water and Clean Water State Revolving Funds
  2. the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act
  3. Financing Septic Systems
