Part 2: How 10,000 Communities Can Build Resilient and Equitable Economies

The federal government has recently approved an unprecedented amount of funding to support long-term economic resiliency through an alphabet soup of legislation from BIL to IRA to CHIPs. However, without a place-based investment approach to blend funding, under-served rural and urban communities will be unable to apply, receive, and absorb catalytic capital and capacity support. In this session, cross-sectoral leaders will discuss smart strategic interventions to better help under-served communities access public and private opportunity capital.
