Speed Updating: Round 2

By August 15, 2022August 19th, 2022No Comments

Thursday, August 18th at noon

On August 18th, we heard a series of short presentations on the amazing work Appalachian groups are doing to build capacity and bring federal funding to Appalachia.

There’s a lot of federal funding coming our way & the amount of grants can be overwhelming. So we’ve put together this Speed Updating event to see how groups can synergize resources to streamline this process!

This event cross-pollinated how groups are working on building capacity in local communities to take advantage of federal funding opportunities and which issues they are prioritizing. Participants prepared and shared 2-4 minute mini-presentations with 2-3 slides covering one or more of the questions below. 

  • What resources are you creating, prioritizing and sharing? 
  • What resources are you looking for? 
  • What are highlights of your work in this arena that have been most useful/gotten the best feedback?
  • What challenges have your faced implementing your work this year?
