Office of Water Programs (OWP)


OWP has been designated as the Environmental Finance Center (EFC) for EPA’s Region 9. There are 10 EFCs nationwide. The EFC will serve Region 9 state and local governments, tribal communities, and the private sector in the areas of financial planning and asset management. The goal of the EFC is to enable these entities to become capable of funding environmental and public health services, in the short term, and to be able to adapt to future needs as regulations, technology, and resources change.
