Agency, E. P. (n.d.). Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Financial Advisory Board Strategic Action Agenda. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The nation has made huge investments in, and significant progress toward, controlling pollution discharges and restoring environmental quality. Much of the credit for this success is due to EPA?s use of regulatory and enforcement tools, and to the transfer of significant resources from the federal government to state and local governments to help construct environmental infrastructure. Two trends challenge our ability to maintain and improve our standard of environmental quality. First, needs and expectations for environmental protection continue to grow. Second, federal deficits, tax reduction initiatives, and growing overall demands on state resources constrain traditional public sources of environmental funding. The result is an increasing tension between the costs of environmental protection and the resources available to meet those costs. To address these environmental and resource challenges in a sustainable manner, EPA will need to consider the full range of finance-related alternatives available. This effort will include traditional regulatory and enforcement tools and federal assistance programs. It will also require innovative projects and technologies, improved efficiencies, creative financing techniques, and leveraged public-private partnerships. The Environmental Financial Advisory Board (EFAB) and Environmental Finance Center (EFC) Network look to be an integral part of this EPA effort. EFAB is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to advise EPA on environmental finance issues, options, proposals, and trends. EFAB seeks practical ways of lowering costs and increasing investments in public Purpose: environmental facilities and services. The EFC Network consists of nine university-based programs that deliver traditional and innovative financial outreach services to the regulated communities. EFAB is supported by EPA?s Office of the Chief Financial Officer. EFAB?s Chair is Lyons Gray of North Carolina. Its Executive Director and Designated Federal Official is A. Stanley Meiburg, Deputy Regional Administrator, Region IV. EFAB?s plans and operations are aligned with the major environmental goals presented in EPA?s strategic plan.
