Tuesday, July 30th from 2 PM- 3 PM ET



Communities often struggle to access the resources they need to build critical infrastructure and economic development projects, from basic water and energy facilities to climate-smart buildings and housing, all of which can drive long-term resilience. Does your community need to access resources to increase your shared prosperity? We have a tool to help!

On July 30th at 2pm, ReImagine Appalachia, the Milken Institute, and the Appalachian Sustainable Finance Hub are hosting a virtual event to discuss an exciting new platform, the Community Infrastructure Center, where community project proposals can be linked with trusted providers who can help with funding and expertise. Learn how to connect and share ideas with like-minded folks, and get technical assistance for project planning and execution. Come and learn about how to stay up-to-date on relevant funding opportunities for your project, and streamline the grant application process. The event will include a platform demonstration, a case study, and interactive discussion. 



This event is for community advocates, economic development professionals, local government officials, and anyone who is interested in working in cross-sector collaboration to co-create solutions for our most pressing infrastructure challenges. We look forward to seeing you!
