Hello, and welcome to the Friday Update from GREATER MSP's Federal Funding Hub!
The purpose of this message is to share information so that our region can make the most of the opportunities under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Three Opportunities to Engage
Eligible applicants for EDA competitive grants are invited to sign up for “Office Hours with our U.S. EDA Representative.” EDA informed GREATER MSP that they are not receiving as many grant applications from applicants in the MSP region as the rest of the state. To help eligible applicants connect with EDA, GREATER MSP is coordinating short 1:1 sessions with EDA for potential applicants to ask questions and receive feedback. All potential applicants with eligible projects are invited to participate!
GREATER MSP will present a webinar about our region’s Build Back Better grant application on November 12th from 9-10am. Please contact Jocelyn.Jimenez@greatermsp.org for an invitation and link for the webinar.
The Governor’s Council on Economic Expansion will meet November 8 to “Discuss the details of the recommendations for the Governor and Lieutenant Governor and vote on final recommendations.” View materials and join the meeting here.
