Rural Gathering

Event Details

Thursday, November 9th, 2023
2:00 pm- 3:30 pm PST
Online via Zoom

Small and rural nonprofits have historically struggled to access and secure federal funds. Do you want to learn how to navigate federal funds and what additional resources are available?
Join us at our next Rural Nonprofit Gathering, where Jessica Mendieta from the National Council of Nonprofits will present different federal funding sources available.
During this gathering, Jessica will guide small and rural nonprofits on how to access unspent American Rescue Plan Act funds at the county/municipal levels and on accessing renewable energy grants like the Inflation Reduction Act and childcare grants. She will also touch on other areas like:
  • Successful examples of Investments in Washington State
  • Nonprofit Advocacy to secure funds
  • Philanthropic Engagement


Free- please register to receive Zoom link
