State Water Board and Five Partner Agencies to Host Infrastructure Funding Fairs

The State Water Resources Control Board, along with five partner agencies, will host six free California Financing Coordinating Committee (CFCC) Funding Fairs throughout California in the coming months.

The funding fairs are an excellent opportunity for public works and local government representatives to obtain information on funding available for infrastructure projects. Project categories include drinking water, wastewater, water quality, water supply, water conservation, water use efficiency, energy efficiency and flood management. Some of the participating agencies also fund other types of infrastructure projects, such as streets and highways, emergency response vehicles, solid waste and community facilities.

Formed in 1998, CFCC has six funding members: The State Water BoardCalifornia Department of Water ResourcesCalifornia Department of Housing and Community DevelopmentU.S. Department of Agriculture Rural DevelopmentU.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation; and California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank.

CFCC members facilitate and expedite the completion of various types of infrastructure projects by helping customers combine the resources of different agencies. Since 2000, CFCC members have conducted free funding fairs statewide to educate the public about available financial and technical resources.

These fairs provide one-stop shopping for those looking for infrastructure funding in California. Each of the listed agencies will provide information on their available infrastructure grant, loan and bond financing programs, including funding available from the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (Proposition 1) and The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 (Proposition 68). Additionally, attendees can speak directly with program staff about specific projects and issues affecting their community.
