In addition to its loan program, NADB also provides and administers grant financing to help make environmental infrastructure projects more affordable for border communities. Grant financing is currently available through two programs:
Border Environment Infrastructure Fund (BEIF)
Funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this program offers grant financing exclusively for the implementation of high-priority municipal drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects located within 100 kilometers of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Community Assistance Program (CAP)
Funded with NADB retained earnings, this program offers grant financing to support the implementation of projects sponsored by public entities in all environmental sectors eligible for NADB financing.
