Field of Study: 
Finance
Level: 
Intermediate
Description: 

Finance officers from state and local governments don’t need to be told  how helpful federal funding can be to a capital project. Luckily, the federal government makes  billions available in grant funds every year to support a wide variety of government projects and government functions. Unfortunately the federal grant system is complex and can be difficult to navigate. In this session, speakers will provide tips and strategies for finance officers and their staff  looking to obtain those elusive additional grant funds and how to better "work" the existing system. In addition, speakers will provide an overview of major sources of available funding and how to  determine which program is best suited for common needs and projects.
