Equipment Leasing and Finance Association - Equiping Business for Success

Representing the Equipment Finance Industry

ELFA advocates for the equipment finance industry through a strong federal and state government relations program.

Federal Advocacy

Improving the business and regulatory environment: ELFA serves as the advocate for the equipment finance industry to the federal government. Two of the most important areas of focus for ELFA’s federal advocacy efforts are tax policy, including comprehensive tax reform, and financial services regulatory policy, especially the changes made by the Dodd-Frank Act.


State Advocacy

Defending member interests around the nation: ELFA actively monitors and engages state legislation and regulations that have an impact on the industry in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Our efforts depend upon our members' involvement with their state and local legislators.
