advice and recommendations to EPA on innovative approaches to funding 
environmental programs, projects, and

activities. Administrative support for the EFAB is provided by the 
Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center within EPA's Office 
of Water. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that 
the EFAB will hold a public webinar briefing. The purpose of the 
webinar will be for members of the EFAB to hear from the Opportunity 
Zones and Pollution Prevention Workgroups on the draft deliverable 
products and provide initial feedback on the drafts. The final 
Opportunity Zones and Pollution Prevention Workgroups deliverables will 
be voted on by EFAB during a future public meeting. The webinar is open 
to the public, but no oral public comments will be accepted during the 
briefing. Written public comments relating to the workgroups should be 
provided in accordance with the instructions below on written 
    Registration for the Meeting: Register for the meeting at https://epaefabworkgroupswebinar.eventbrite.com.
    Availability of Meeting Materials: Meeting materials (including the 
meeting agenda and briefing materials) will be available on EPA's 
website at https://www.epa.gov/waterfinancecenter/efab.
    Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for 
consideration by EPA's federal advisory committees has a different 
purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, 
the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is 
different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program 
office. Federal advisory committees provide independent advice to EPA. 
Members of the public can submit comments on matters being considered 
by the EFAB for consideration by members as they develop their advice 
and recommendations to EPA.
    Written Statements: Written statements for the webinar should be 
received by September 15, 2022, so that the information can be made 
available to the EFAB for its consideration. Written statements should 
be sent via email to [email protected]. Members of the public should be 
aware that their personal contact information, if included in any 
written comments, may be posted to the EFAB website. Copyrighted 
material will not be posted without explicit permission of the 
copyright holder.
    Accessibility: For information on access or services for 
individuals with disabilities or to request accommodations for a 
disability, please register for the webinar and list any special 
requirements or accommodations needed on the registration form at least 
10 business days prior to the meeting to allow as much time as possible 
to process your request.
