the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. App. 2, to provide 
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 meeting with a webcast for the following purposes:
    (1) Provide workgroup updates and work products;
    (2) Discuss potential future EFAB charges; and
    (3) Receive briefings on environmental finance topics from invited 
speakers from EPA.

component of the meeting cannot be held due to relevant pandemic 
protocols, the meeting will be conducted fully via webcast.
    Availability of Meeting Materials: Meeting materials, including the 
meeting agenda and briefing materials, will be available on EPA's 
website at 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 may submit comments on matters being considered 
by the EFAB for consideration as the Board develops its advice and 
recommendations to EPA.
    Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an 
oral presentation at a public meeting will be limited to three minutes 
each. Persons interested in providing oral statements at the October 
2022 meeting should register in advance and provide notification, as 
noted in the registration confirmation, by October 11, 2022, to be 
placed on the list of registered speakers.
    Written Statements: Written statements should be received by 
October 11, 2022, so that the information can be made available to the 
EFAB for its consideration prior to the meeting. 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 meeting 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.
