8:30am – 11:30am, Tuesday, August 8, Room 360, Ambassador Ballroom
The Bipartisan Infrastructure bill and the Inflation Reduction Act’s investments in infrastructure, site remediation and redevelopment, and Green Bank funding means that more resources than ever before will be available to States, Tribes, local governments, and communities. But how can environmental justice and disadvantaged communities access these resources, and how can state and federal agencies meet their Justice40 Framework goals? This workshop for environmental justice advocates and other interested parties will help you become an informed navigator of funding resources for your community. Through case studies, an overview of funding opportunities and interactive Q&A, you will learn what resources are available, how to best position your community to access them, and how to navigate the application process at the federal and state level.
