2015 Effective and Innovative Stormwater Financing Strategies: East Coast/West Coast Knowledge
The Environmental Finance Center (EFC), based at the University of Maryland, is one of nine University–based EFCs, and has been providing communities with tools and information related to stormwater financing. Their focus is protecting natural resources and watersheds by strengthening the capacity of local decision-makers to analyze environmental problems, develop innovative and effective methods of financing environmental efforts and educate communities about the role of finance and economic development in the protection of the environment.
EFC West, previously based at Dominican University in San Rafael, CA has recently joined the University of Maryland EFC. This partnership now extends the opportunities and offers a more streamlined approach in which the EFC centers can support community environmental financing initiatives from coast to coast.
