Wichita State University Environmental Finance Center
In 2009, EPA initiated a national competition to establish Environmental Finance Centers (EFCs) across the country. Wichita State University (WSU) was one of 10 universities selected. The central goal of an EFC is to help create environmentally and financially sustainable communities. The WSU center will help communities, tribes and private entities comply with environmental and public health protection requirements.
"I am very pleased EPA has recognized the creativity and initiative at work in the Hugo Wall School of Urban and Public Affairs at Wichita State University,” said Karl Brooks, EPA Region 7 Administrator. “This new EFC will be a powerful resource to help the region's local governments develop partnerships and provide training to help meet the financial requirements of environmental protection.”
EPA has a long history of working with community leaders and the public to develop innovative solutions for improving their financial and environmental sustainable efforts. The creation of an EFC expands the capacity of services available to communities in Region 7, which consists of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
