The EPA Clean Energy-Environment Municipal Network is launching a free webcast series. The series is primarily targeted for local governments, but is open to the public. The first webcast will focus on navigating the grant process, with a focus on EPA energy and environment related grants. Tentative future topics include: energy efficiency in affordable housing, energy efficient product procurement, and going beyond building codes. Sessions run 2-3:30pm.
Presenters will discuss:
* Where to look for grants (EPA/federal),
* Grant requirements,
* Typical timeframe for the grant process,
* Evaluating grants,
* Challenges and ways to overcome them, and
* Tips for writing strong proposals.

Priority for registration is given to local and regional government staff and officials. If multiple staff from your agency wish to participate, they ask that you share a computer and phone line as space is limited. EPA plans to record and post these webcasts on its Clean Energy website.
