The Tap into Resilience Toolkit financing module details how stormwater managers can access capital dollars and other revenue streams to pay for decentralized water infrastructure and solutions to common legal, financial and accounting questions that arise when increasing investments in these environmentally friendly programs. The implementing module details common challenges – and corresponding solutions – for public utilities deploying decentralized strategies on public property not directly owned or controlled by the utility and private property. These two main modules include multiple sub-layers that link to practical information and resources designed for local water managers.
