Now through Aug. 31st, the Local Infrastructure Hub has opened registration for a Grant Application Bootcamp.
The Local Infrastructure Hub is currently developing a Grant Application Bootcamp open to local government leaders. Registration for the program is open now through August 31st but space is limited. Organizers of the bootcamp are encouraging interested jurisdictions to sign up as soon as possible.
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:
- Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities ($1 billion): Supports communities as they undertake hazard mitigation projects, reducing the risks they face from disasters and natural hazards.
- Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program ($550 million): Supports communities to implement strategies to reduce fossil fuel emissions, reduce the total energy use of the eligible entities, improve energy efficiency in the transportation, building, and other appropriate sectors.
- Flood Mitigation Assistance Grants ($3.5 billion): Supports communities with projects that reduce or eliminate the risk of repetitive flood damage to buildings insured by the National Flood Insurance Program.
- Strengthening Mobility and Revolutionizing Transportation (SMART) Grant Program ($500 million): Supports communities on demonstration projects focused on advanced smart community technologies and systems in order to improve transportation efficiency and safety.
- Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grants ($2.5 billion): Supports communities to address EV charging needs for passenger vehicles and light duty trucks.
