Building State Capacity to Unlock Federal Climate Dollars: A Discussion with the State Funding Readiness Project
May 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
As states across the country get into the full swing of implementing federal climate dollars in their communities, we recognize that sharing lessons learned across state lines is more important now than ever. Building capacity and providing technical assistance is essential to ensure state governments and their partners can effectively and equitably utilize their federal funds to advance meaningful climate action.
One such technical assistance provider is the State Funding Readiness Project (SFRP), an initiative led by Hua Nani Partners and the US Climate Alliance that provides free technical assistance and capacity support to help states unlock the full potential of federal climate investments. We’ve invited a panel of their experts to share what they learned from the early stages of this program, including insights into the role of equity and Justice40, best practices for federal grant applications, and a case study from one of their state partners. Expert speakers include:
- Chris Bast, Principal at Hua Nani Partners
- Jasmine McAdams, SFRP Equity and Environmental Justice Lead
- Melissa Hampe, SFRP Federal Grant Writing Expert
