October 31, 2018 9:00 am - 10:00 am
This webinar, organized by Urban Water Funders, will explore how philanthropy can advance green infrastructure by using both grants and mission- or program-related investments.
The webinar will address the gap between investment expectations and water utility realities. It will also offer examples of specific projects in Philadelphia and other communities across the country. In addition, funders will get an update on new rules governing debt-financing by utilities that will unlock financing needed to scale up installations of green infrastructure.
Speakers will include:
- Margaret Bowman, Spring Point Partners
- Cynthia Koehler, WaterNow Alliance
- Craig Holland, The Nature Conservancy
- Nathan Boon, William Penn Foundation (moderator)
