In this Technical Assistance Workshop, you will hear from guest presenters from the U.S. Department of Transportation, National League of Cities, National Endowment for the Arts, Environmental Protection Network, Institute for Sustainable Communities, Art-Train (a program of Springboard for the Arts) and others who will offer insight on how to access federal support, navigate the grant system, and engage creative people in your community for this work.
