CIFA advocates for increased federal funding for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds (SRFs), the nation's premier programs for financing water infrastructure that protects public health and the environment.

The 2020 Budget (H.R. 1865) became law on Friday, December 20.

  • WIFIA for SRFs (SWIFIA / SRF WIN): $5 million for state financing authorities which could provide as much as $500 million in loans from the U.S. Treasury
