Office of Chief Financial Officer Environmental Finance Centers and Contacts

The Environmental Finance Centers (EFC) provide state and local officials and small businesses with advisory services; education, publications, and training; technical assistance; and analyses on financing alternatives. The EFC network currently includes: the University of Southern Maine, Syracuse University, University of Maryland, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Louisville, Great Lakes EFC at Cleveland State University, New Mexico Tech, California State University at Hayward, and Boise State University. These centers have proven effective vehicles for promoting innovative environmental financing techniques. While EPA provides seed funding for EFC start-up operations, financial independence of the centers is a major objective. To obtain addition information concerning the EFCs, visit their website at http://www.epa.gov/efinpage/efc.htm#intro.
