About the event
Join RMI and the World Resources Institute on November 15 at 2:30pm ET for the sixth installment of the Federal Funding Learning Series to introduce the “AFFORD” tool and unpack relevant upcoming federal opportunities. “AFFORD” (America’s Federal Funding Opportunities and Resources for Decarbonization) makes it easy for state and local governments, tribes, higher education, faith, health care, and cultural institutions to find, compare, and prioritize federal funding opportunities for clean energy and decarbonization projects.
AFFORD is the latest upgrade to the tool formerly known as FFOLD, now packed with more Inflation Reduction Act incentives and redesigned for easier navigation and a broader audience. After introducing the tool and our enhanced and highly tactical “Funding Guidance,” we will highlight a few upcoming federal programs and incentives that should be on your radar, give an overview of direct pay, and take questions based on your direct experience navigating new and existing federal programs.
We welcome previous participants and new attendees alike. Check out our previous episodes here if you are new to this series.
