EFAB has accepted the charge to form a stormwater finance workgroup, meeting the Agency’s requirements for the task force under the America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA). As part of this stormwater finance workgroup, the Agency is now accepting nominations for expert consultants to advise the workgroup.

EPA values and welcomes diversity. To obtain a diverse pool of candidates, EPA encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups. The following criteria will be used to evaluate nominees:

  • representation from federal agencies, state government, local government, private sector, and non-profit organizations;
  • demonstrated expertise in stormwater funding and/or financing, stormwater technical experience, stormwater stakeholder engagement, or water infrastructure funding and management;
  • geographic diversity; and
  • varying community characteristics experience.

Nominations for expert consultants must include a resume describing the professional and/or educational qualifications of the nominee as well as expertise/experience. Contact details should include full name, affiliation title, business mailing address, telephone, and email address. A supporting letter of endorsement is encouraged but not required. Nominations should be electronically submitted to the Water Finance Center (waterfinancecenter@epa.gov) with the subject line “EFAB Stormwater Finance Workgroup – Expert Consultant Nomination” no later than 11:59 p.m. local time on Friday, April 19, 2019.
