The EFC in 2023

At the EFC, 2022 was a year of trying new things. We were able to work with new communities, engage with new partners, develop and implement new resources and projects, and  envision what the EFC will look like over the next few years. Along with our long-standing projects and relationships, 2023 brings more new projects and new collaborations that help our Center's mission to build the capacity of communities to address their environmental challenges.

Who We Are

The costs of environmental services, programs and infrastructure continue to rise. At the same time, the individuals, communities and governments tasked with paying for environmental protection are experiencing significant financial burdens. The WSU Environmental Finance Center (EFC), housed within the Hugo Wall School of Public Affairs, is one of 10 Environmental Finance Centers located across the country that provide communities with professional training, technical assistance and applied research to bolster efforts to manage the costs of environmental protection for the public.

What We Do

Our projects leverage federal and state funds to provide three primary services: professional training, applied research and technical assistance. Learn more about our work in our 2020 Annual Report.
