Course Description

In November 2021, President Joe Biden signed into law the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which provides historic investment across multiple infrastructure sectors. IIJA includes funding for both new and existing programs that will be disbursed over the next five years through formula funding and competitive grants. Grant experts at The Ferguson Group LLC (TFG) will provide an introduction into the federal grants landscape, help participants understand how to take a project from conception to submission, and cover everything in between. The extensive workshop will cover everything from grant fundamentals including required registrations, grant identification, and writing, to a deep dive into how to prepare projects for funding, improve past applications, and engage project partners. TFG professionals have decades of grant experience and have helped clients secure nearly $1 billion in competitive federal, state, and foundation funding since 2015.
