What We Do

Providing Grants and Financings to Local Governments
We Fund New York's Water Infrastructure

The Environmental Facilities Corporation helps local governments and eligible organizations undertake their water infrastructure projects. We provide grants and financing to help ensure projects are affordable while safeguarding essential water resources. We provide "one-stop shop" financial services that save money, time and your staff resources.

EFC administers state and federal grants as well as interest-free and low-cost financing to help minimize the tax burden for your community. We use multiple financing strategies to maximize the funding that can be made available to our partners.
