USDA to Host Oct. 17 Webinar on Technical Assistance and Training Grants to Help Restore Community Facilities Damaged by Natural Disasters in 2022
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5, 2023 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will host a webinar on Oct. 17 at 12:30 p.m. ET for organizations seeking grants to help restore community facilities in rural areas damaged by natural disasters in 2022.
USDA recently announced the availability of $2.5 million in grants through the Community Facilities Technical Assistance and Training Disaster Repair (CF Disaster TAT) Grant Program. These funds must be used to provide technical assistance to repair essential community facilities in eligible rural areas damaged by presidentially declared disasters in calendar year 2022.
Examples of technical assistance include helping communities locate public and private funding resources, identify and plan for needed repairs, and prepare applications for financial assistance. Eligible applicants include public bodies such as state governments, local municipalities, federally recognized Indian Tribes, and nonprofits.
The webinar will provide details on the funding availability, eligibility requirements and how to apply for the grants. Applicants will have an opportunity to ask questions about the application process.
The deadline to submit electronic applications via Grants.gov is Nov. 24. The deadline to submit paper applications is Nov. 29. Additional information on the disaster grants is also available on Grants.gov and in the Federal Register.
