(April 2, 2019) – Hundreds of NACWA members, water sector leaders and water professionals from around the country are arriving in Washington DC this week to advocate with Congress and key national policy makers for clean water.
Among the advocacy “asks”—to be delivered through face-to-face meetings with Congressional Members during the National Water Policy Fly-In—are increases in funding for the State Revolving Fund (SRF), the Water Infrastructure Finance & Innovation Act (WIFIA), and the National Priorities Water Research Grant Program, and other federal water programs.
See the full list of requests to Congress in the Water Week One Pager.
