River Network envisions a future of clean and ample water for people and nature, where local caretakers are well-equipped, effective, and courageous champions for our rivers.


The passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) has been celebrated by advocates for its historic investment in water infrastructure. Most of this investment flows through the State Revolving Loan Fund Program (SRFs), the largest source of federal funding for water infrastructure. But how do you access these funds and ensure they’re implemented equitably? We have information available to ensure water protectors across our network are able to meet this historic moment. 

Learn more about SRFs or IIJA resources.
