Mission Statement

The California Pollution Control Financing Authority (CPCFA) provides California businesses with a reasonable method of financing pollution control and other facilities, fosters compliance with government imposed environmental standards and requirements, and assists small businesses with access to capital.

  • In the solid waste, recycling, water, and wastewater industries through its Pollution Control Tax-Exempt Bond Program.
  • For small businesses through the California Capital Access Program (CalCAP).
  • With the reuse and redevelopment of brownfields through the California Recycle Underutilized Sites Program (CALReUSE).
  • With financial assistance to cities and counties in their community planning and development efforts through the Sustainable Communities Grant and Loan Program (SCGL).

The CPCFA consists of the State Treasurer (Chairperson), the State Controller, and the Director of the Department of Finance.
