WE'VE DEVELOPED TOOLKITS TO HELP YOU NAVIGATE SOME FEDERAL FUNDING

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) directly provides $130 billion in federal funding to local governments as leaders recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. This unprecedented level of aid will help communities across the U.S. shape their recovery from the pandemic’s economic impacts. Local leaders should view the arrival of ARP funds as a critical opportunity to make investments that encourage recovery and accelerate progress towards long-term goals.

Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) will allocate $973 billion, including $550 billion in new investments across transportation modes, water, power and energy, environmental remediation, public lands, broadband and resilience. The BIL not only authorizes numerous programs but also provides multi-year funding in advance to a number of federal departments and agencies.

FIND YOUR FEDERAL GRANT

SEAP created this resource as an easy way to find Federal discretionary grants. Discretionary grants are different from formula or block grants – they are competitive, require an application, and are reviewed based on the quality of the application. This step-by-step guide is an easy way to quickly see the grants for which you’re eligible.
