TFG in partnership with NACA and eCivis will be hosting a comprehensive webinar on federal funding opportunities available to local governments and non-profits to combat the opioid crisis. The hour-long webinar will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 2 P.M. EST.

The webinar will provide background information on the avenues federal opioid funding is general filtered through including the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services. The webinar will highlight four upcoming grant opportunities that provide funding for law enforcement, treatment and recovery services, and rural healthcare programming.

In addition, we are excited to announce that a representative from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) will also be presenting on the webinar, and will discussing the September 2019 announcement by the Trump Administration regarding an increase in federal opioid funding. The funding will grant more than $900 million in new funding to the CDC for opioid related programs.

The webinar is intended to help local communities recognize options available to them at the federal level and understand changes to this funding coming in 2020 and beyond.  We hope you can join us!

TFG will be hosting a comprehensive hour-long webinar on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPAs) Brownfield Grant programs on October 9, 2019 at 2 PM EST. The EPA is expected to release the FY 2020 solicitations for Brownfields during the Fall of 2019.

A brownfield is a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Brownfields Programs prime communities for economic development through providing funding to prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. The webinar will cover in-depth three specific Brownfields programs:

  • Assessment Grants
  • Cleanup Grants
  • Multipurpose Grants

TFG will help attendees to understand the basis for each program and discuss eligibility requirements, priority projects, and tips for submitting a successful application. The webinar will also cover the recent changes to the Federal Brownfields Law and prepare applicants to make any necessary changes to previously submitted applications.

The webinar will be hosted by Karl Kalbacher, PG, TFG’s Director of Grants, and expert in Brownfield applications.
