Funding Small Communities
FUNDING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT & REVITALIZATION:
A Workshop Designed for Small Communities
Recognizing the challenges faced by smaller and rural communities, we bring the workshop and experts to you! We offer the same content in multiple locations across your state, making it easier for you to get the latest information on state, federal and nonprofit funding sources and technical assistance. Targeted to smaller and rural communities, this workshop will teach you how to obtain funding to redevelop your downtown and transform previously-used sites-such as brownfields sites-into main streets, parks, trails and job-creating facilities.
This free workshop is designed for local governments, economic development departments, Councils of Government, general improvement districts, non-profits, community development corporations, tribes, and other organizations or partnerships interested in sustainable development.
We are planning our 2013 season of workshops now. Check back later for updates on where and when we will be holding small community funding workshops or contact Erin Franks at email@example.com for more information.
