Federal Discretionary Grant Program Networking Workshop

New federal discretionary grant programs were authorized under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in addition to existing grant programs. More funding is available and new guidance is being issued that will govern the distribution of these funds.

Come learn more about these funding opportunities and how and when to apply for discretionary grants. This event will bring local governments, tribes, transit systems and state agencies together with private sector partners to explore how we can help Minnesota maximize the amount of federal funding coming to our state.

This Workshop will feature:

  • Overview and Updates on Federal Discretionary Grant Programs
    • Minnesota Office of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
    • Minnesota Department of Transportation Federal Liaison
    • Minnesota Department of Transportation State Aid Office
    • Metropolitan Council
  • Meet Transportation Alliance Sponsors
  • Lunch
  • Congressionally Directed Spending
    • Congressional Staff
