News from Representative Larson

Grants E-Newsletter

September 2019

Dear Friends:

As your Representative in Congress, it is my privilege to provide you with this monthly e-grants newsletter. Due to the competitive nature and limited scope of federal funding, it is my hope that this newsletter helps guide you through the grants process.

Below, you will find a list of recent federal grants awarded in Connecticut’s First Congressional District, relevant local and national grants news, featured federal funding opportunities, and a more detailed list of available grants. Before you apply for a federal grant, you must obtain a DUNS number, register with the System for Award Management (SAM), and register with Grants.gov well in advance of the submission deadline (more information on registration below). For a complete list of federal grants and programs, please visit: www.grants.gov and beta.sam.gov (formerly cfda.gov).

We welcome your feedback as we seek to provide you with the most useful information relative to the grants process. More information about grants can be found at my website: https://larson.house.gov/services/apply-federal-grant. Should you have any questions or if you would like to learn more about federal grants, please contact Conor Quinn in my District Office at 860-278-8888.

All the best,

News:

 

  1. The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced that it has added Opportunity Zones as an Investment Priority. This new Investment Priority will significantly increase the number of catalytic Opportunity Zone-related projects that EDA can fund to spur greater public investment in these areas. EDA has previously taken steps in its 2018 Notice of Funding Opportunity for Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Programs to make eligible entities within qualified Opportunity Zones generally eligible for EDA funds. With this announcement, the Opportunity Zone Investment Priority immediately applies to most existing EDA funding notices.    
  2. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the availability of nearly $87 million in grant funding to assist states, tribes, and territories with improving drinking water. States, tribes, and territories are eligible to receive funding from two new EPA drinking water grant programs established by the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (WIIN): the Voluntary Lead Testing in Schools and Child Care grant program; and, the Assistance for Small and Disadvantaged Communities grant program. For more information, visit: https://www.epa.gov/safewater/grants.3
