Grant Application Bootcamp

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has provided cities with unprecedented opportunities to apply directly for federal funding, but some cities and towns have fewer resources and staff, impeding their ability to bid effectively. Through the Local Infrastructure Hub, small and mid-sized municipalities can receive an expert suite of supports to develop strong, competitive grant applications through pro-bono technical training and grant-writing Bootcamps. Over the past five Bootcamp series, the Local Infrastructure Hub has supported over 700 cities with 150,000 residents or fewer navigate the federal grant writing process, and is working with more than 1,200 localities overall across all of its program offerings, including virtual webinars and learning opportunities available for cities of any size.

New Bootcamp Offerings

Now with five bootcamp phases complete, the Local Infrastructure Hub will be hosting a new set of bootcamps beginning Spring 2024 focused on different funding opportunities made available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act. These bootcamps are open for registration and will run through Spring 2024.
