The Council of Infrastructure Financing Authorities is a national not-for-profit organization that represents the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs).


SRFs are state-federal partnerships that provide communities with low-cost subsidized loans for water infrastructure that protects public health and the environment. Over the last three decades, the programs, combined, have generated an investment of more than $179 billion in a variety of water projects, including drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, water recycling, stormwater management, pollution prevention, environmental conservation and green infrastructure.
