Small communities face a unique set of challenges when it comes to grants. Many lack the staff, resources, and strategy to apply for and manage grants. But with discipline and creativity, even the smallest of jurisdictions can compete for, and properly manage, a variety of grant funds. 

Join ICMA strategic partner eCivis and a panel of experts for a look at the most common small community challenges and practical solutions for dealing with them.

You and your staff will discuss how to overcome challenges in:

  • Reduced staffing for grant administrators
  • Lost institutional knowledge
  • Low funding rates for grant applications
  • Information systems
  • Managing grant administration and program requirements
  • The application process and the most common mistakes you should avoid

You will learn from:

  • Ryan Baird, director of client services, eCivis
  • Kevin Harper, CPA, founder, Kevin W. Harper CPA & Associates
  • Alisa Anderson, grants manager, city of Moscow, Idaho
  • Brenda Cooley-Olwin, CPA, finance consultant, Public Law Group
