Grant Assistance & Fiscal Recovery

Local governments and partner organizations in the region are eligible for an expansive number of federal and state funding opportunities, including many new pots of money. These competitive grants are an incredibly chance for our region to access more money for key priorities and think strategically about projects. 

Resources to Prepare for New Funding Opportunities

Federal Funds

October 1st is the start of a new Fiscal Year for the federal government. It is never too early to get started developing grant applications, even if a new Notice of Funding is yet to be released. Here are TJCOG's tips for making the most of federal funding opportunities:

  • Use this annual forecast of grants to plan your approach.
  • Begin your application using last year's Notices of Funding Opportunities (NOFO). Funding will follow similar guidelines if administrations have not changed.
  • Submitted a project during the FY21 funding cycle that wasn't awarded? Ask for feedback from the funding agency before they release their newest NOFO.
  • Learn about building competitive federal proposals in this webinar with Leslie Mozingo.
  • Subscribe to the TJCOG Grant Alert, sent out every other Friday morning.

These TJCOG staffers are happy to help you integrate current priorities for federal applications into your proposal.
