Register for Federal Infrastructure Grant Application Bootcamp
The National League of Cities (NLC), the League’s federal partner, in conjunction with Bloomberg Philanthropies, has announced a Local Infrastructure Hub Grant Application Bootcamp for municipalities with a population less than 150,000 to access federal infrastructure dollars.
The application process is now open and closes on August 31.
Towns and cities participating in these programs will receive support from NLC to develop a robust federal grant application, including access to subject matter experts, individualized coaching sessions, office hours, and peer-to-peer learning, as well as tools including templates, example submissions, and white papers. The technical assistance program will last approximately 3-4 months and participants will include mayors and municipal staff with job functions focused on finance, community engagement, and other relevant disciplines.
Over the next two years, there will be at least 30 bootcamps, each tied to a specific category of funding available as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The first five offerings that will be available this fall will focus on the following grant categories:
This is a great opportunity for municipalities to learn best practices to obtain federal funding. The League encourage municipalties to register and participate.
