Financing Readiness Questionnaire


Identifying and securing sources of financing for projects in the municipal solid waste sector is the most critical aspect of bringing those projects to fruition. In many instances, it is also the most challenging. Before seeking financing, proponents of municipal solid waste projects should ensure the city itself, not just the project, is “finance-ready.”
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition Municipal Solid Waste Initiative (Waste Initiative) developed a Financing Readiness Questionnaire for cities. By completing this questionnaire, cities can enhance their readiness for financing and will be better positioned to identify and secure financing for their municipal solid waste projects.

Developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with support from Abt Associates on behalf of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition Municipal Solid Waste Initiative.
