    Join Groundswell CEO Michelle Moore, along with Hope Cupit (Southeast Rural Community Assistance Project) and Chris Weaver (Grid Alternatives) for a panel focused on overcoming obstacles to sustainable investments for the communities that need it most. Remote and rural local governments and communities have often faced capacity constraints when applying for and subsequently, managing large federal grants. New mandates and tools such as Justice 40, the EPA Environmental Justice Thriving Communities Technical Assistance Centers (EPA EJ TCTAC), and others have been established to remedy these longstanding challenges. The diverse viewpoints represented on this interactive panel will highlight the leading practices that are helping remote, rural, and tribal communities secure funding to ensure effective and sustainable investments in hopes of demystifying the funding process and calling out the lingering challenges that could be improved by outside intervention and support (Topics will include rural electrification, transportation infrastructure, etc.).
