Federal Funding Grant Workshops

The National League of Cities and the Local Infrastructure Hub are proud to bring you a free series of bootcamp training courses designed to help small and mid-sized cities secure funding for infrastructure projects.

With at least 30 courses available in this two-year project, each of the courses will run for an average of four months, with live learning sessions taught by subject matter experts, along with coaching sessions, office hours, and opportunities for peer learning.

Cities will be guided through the process of how to complete an asset map for their community; using those, cities can refine how they build and execute a community engagement strategy. Cities will also learn how to utilize data to understand problems, test and define solutions, ground applications in data, and ensure their grant applications will achieve the desired outcome/s. Bootcamp training will also provide instruction to assemble a complex capital stack and budget for grant applications, align their grant application with broader federal priorities and write winning grant applications that are tailored to the metrics and policy priorities behind specific grant opportunities.

Spots are limited to the first few hundred cities to register, so register before August 31 and take one step closer to accessing federal infrastructure funding that supports your community!
