Is Your City "Grant-Ready"?
Identifying grants can sometimes feel like looking for a magic formula. Most cities don't have the staff resources or time committed to an aggressive grant strategy.
But there are ways around this challenge. In an Annual Meeting breakout session, Britton Bonner, an attorney with Adams and Reese in Mobile, Alabama and Washington, DC, will outline how a city can increase its chances of success in accessing federal dollars by taking several proactive steps to be “grant ready.”
1 - Devote resources
2 - Identify projects
3 - Be diligent
4 - Coordinate with congressional offices
5 - Look for the state component
6 - Demonstrate leverage
7 - Integrate economic development and governmental relations
Learn more about these seven steps in thee June Uptown or attend the Annual Meeting session on Friday, July 11, at 1:45 p.m.
