What do funders need to know about the new Water Infrastructure Improvement Act?
Join our May 14 webinar organized by TFN’s Urban Water Funders working group to learn more about this act, which enjoyed bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress and was signed into law by President Trump in January 2019. This new act encourages municipalities to use integrated water management and green stormwater infrastructure to identify more effective, affordable, and adaptable strategies for meeting their federal clean water requirements.
This webinar will explore how philanthropy can help communities take advantage of the opportunities to use integrated water management and green stormwater infrastructure in meeting their clean water goals and avoid the potential pitfalls of integrated approaches. Speakers will also share how the new act evolved from its origin as a policy idea within the U.S. Environmental Protection to its passage earlier this year.
Please register for this funder-only webinar by Friday, May 10 to be sure that you receive webinar details.
