"Preparing for Success: Funding Climate Resilience Initiatives"
The Climate Resilience & Stormwater Management Workshop Series is a practical, hands-on sequence of events aimed at helping Rhode Island municipalities move from successful grant writing toward sustainable financing of climate resilience and stormwater management projects. Workshop 1 is focused on preparing municipalities for success in grant writing and will emphasize the constructive exchange of ideas between municipal participants, grant agencies, and the SNEP Network. Participants will come away from Workshop 1 having contributed their unique perspectives, having been inspired by stories of success from other municipalities, and with a take-away list of funding opportunities for 2020.
About the Workshop Series:
The Climate Resilience & Stormwater Management Workshop Series builds from ongoing local initiatives to help Rhode Island municipalities move from successful grant writing toward sustainable financing of climate resilience and stormwater management projects. This 4-part series offers knowledge sharing, idea exchange, and real-world advice and inspiration. Participants are led through successive sessions that build upon one another, from understanding what grant agencies look for in their applications, to beginning the process of establishing sustainable financing sources.
