Grant Application Bootcamp
Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) Grant Program: RAISE provides investments in road, rail, transit, and port projects to enhance freight and passenger transportation networks. These projects will ultimately strengthen supply chains, reduce bottlenecks, and make local communities safer and more efficient for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. Projects might include the development of master plans, zero emissions plans, reducing conflicts in residential areas between freight and traffic, development of port planning, and risk assessments.
Climate Action Bootcamp: The Climate Action Bootcamp is a unique program that will provide an overview of climate action planning and federal funding opportunities for projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in communities. For cities that are not already a part of a state or regional Climate Pollution Reduction Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the bootcamp will guide cities through the first steps of engaging with relevant partners. The bootcamp will also support cities to explore projects around clean energy, electric vehicles, and building energy efficiency to help meet local climate action goals. The bootcamp will provide an overview of federal grant programs and tax credits under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act to help fund and finance local climate projects.
Digital Equity Act Competitive Grant Program: The Digital Equity Act Competitive Grant Program supports local government efforts to achieve digital equity and promote digital inclusion and broader access to internet. The program seeks to address the divide between those who have internet access and those who do not, a divide that hinders an equitable economy. These projects might include expanded access to internet and digital network technology for broadband services, training programs for workforce development programs, and/or necessary upgrades to public access computing centers.
Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC): BRIC assists communities as they undertake hazard mitigation projects, reducing the risks they face from disasters and natural hazards. The program aims to shift the federal focus away from reactive disaster spending and instead focus efforts on proactive investment in community resilience.
The Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program: FMA supports local communities through investments in strategies to harden resilience, in plans for flood mitigation, and in reducing the risk of damage before a disaster. Projects might include reducing flood losses by elevation and relocation of flood insured structures, along with floodproofing non-residential structures, small local flood reduction projects, and plans to reduce flood damage.
