Grant Development
Workshop


December 8, 2021 
9:00 AM to 10:30 AM

JOIN US FOR AN INFORMATIVE AND INTERACTIVE workshop to learn how to develop and win government grants for energy and sustainable development.

Whether you are a community-based organization, city, research organization, or startup, this event will provide a framework for you to target, source, and pre-develop opportunities and to develop winning applications. State and Federal government grants are expected to be a major opportunity as approval of the 2021 Infrastructure package gears up funding for innovation.

Attendees will learn about the funding landscape and grant development insight from a diverse panel of experts and then join conversations in moderated small groups on grant development for community-based organizations, for researchers, for project developers, and for startups. The event will be rounded out with one-on-one networking between attendees.
