Find and Win the New U.S. Government Grants
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) presents U.S. companies, research institutions and state and local governments with numerous and varied opportunities to apply for grants and other project-related funding. What are these new grant opportunities, and how does a company find, apply for and position itself to win new funding that is part of the Biden administration’s commitment to address climate change? This presentation will review the new grant programs, existing ones that are pertinent to AEE members and stakeholders, and the requirements to apply for them. It will include ways to develop a strategy to apply for U.S. government grants in energy, infrastructure, and innovation. This will be both a “how to” for those ready to apply, and a chance to explore opportunities for those who are curious. A resource sheet will be available to all attendees.
