The annual CIFA SRF Workshop was a conference for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds. Attendees had the opportunity to learn the latest in legislation, policy, financing, and innovation for state revolving funds. They were able to share their success stories, best practices, and lessons learned with peers and federal partners. There were opportunities to network with SRF managers, industry leaders, EPA staff, and members of the financial community from around the nation.
