The EFC works at the regional, state, and individual utility level on affordability and equity issues. Through direct advising and water finance education events, the EFC provides assistance and education to utilities to help them better understand their community’s demographics, how certain segments of their community may be disproportionately impacted, and how to make decisions that address these issues in an equitable manner.


At the state level, the EFC has developed statewide assessments and benchmarking tools to determine and track affordability metrics and challenges over time across regions. Additionally, the EFC assists states in understanding how they are or how they hope to prioritize affordability in their funding programs.
