This session will be focused on improving your chances of receiving grants for your municipality's infrastructure projects. Senior government grants provide a significant source of funding for municipal projects. The session will provide information on upcoming grant programs and eligibility requirements, insight into what funding agencies look for when reviewing applications, how to select the right project, tips and tricks for writing successful grant applications, and the benefits of using a consultant to help your municipality write grant applications. There will be an interactive Q&A session with a panel of all the speakers at the end of the session, so get your questions ready!

Building on last year's success, this session includes an interactive online webinar option for members outside of the Lower Mainland to participate in the session remotely.
