Finding and securing funding for environmental infrastructure may be daunting. To help small communities and tribal governments tackle that task, the Great Lakes Environmental Infrastructure Center is offering a workshop to provide guidance for obtaining funding for environmental infrastructure projects. During the Infrastructure Finance Basics Workshop, attendees will learn more about the funding process, gain the tools for evaluating funding alternatives, and find help for getting started with funding applications. John Sullivan, PE—a senior research engineer for the Center for Technology & Training—and John Velat, MS—the director of the Center for Rural and Tribal Community Resilience—will share their knowledge on this topic, providing:

  • An overview of funding mechanisms
  • Principles of asset management
  • Information related to grants, loans, interest rates, and rate of returns
  • Particulars about municipal bonds
  • Details about fees and assessments

A workshop will be held May 23, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. For more information, visit (Note: GLEIC event registration is handled by the Center for Technology & Training at Michigan Technological University; you will be forwarded to their event registration page by clicking on this link.)
