Capitalize on Public and Private Funding Opportunities Driven by New Federal Initiatives

New federal initiatives post-Flint. Developing urgently-needed water infrastructure. New funding sources for water projects. New disruptive water technologies. Reusing, conserving, efficiency. Climate change and the unpredictability of changing weather patterns. Alternative financing of water projects. These are all critical issues for the future of water in the US right now.

To address these issues, collaboration and information sharing at all levels of government and across the water value chain is critical:
• Where are the best investment opportunities in water in the US now?
• What new government funding sources are available?
• How can different stakeholders across the water spectrum partner to both improve aging water infrastructure and build much-needed new water infrastructure?

Only stakeholders armed with the latest insights, lessons learned, and knowledge about how to maximize project fundability from successfully-funded (public and privately) water projects will succeed in this climate.

Infocast’s Water Finance & Development Summit, taking place May 31 – June 2, 2017 in Washington, D.C., will bring together municipalities, federal and state government officials, project developers, investors, financiers, regulators, water tech companies, utilities and other decision-makers along the water value chain. Meet, strategize, and assess public and private funding opportunities. We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C. for this timely and important event.

Be sure to attend our Pre-Summit Briefing: Water Tech Showcase for a full day of cutting-edge info and discussion of the latest in water technologies.
