  • Receive copies of each department and agency’s slide presentation and additional helpful infrastructure financing material.
  • Speak directly with state and federal program staff about your specific project and issues affecting your community.

Get a sneak preview of the programs you’ll hear about in our 2021 Funding Fairs Handbook.
