PROBLEM

Executive order 14008 stipulates that 40% of the federal investments from covered programs should be allocated to support disadvantaged communities. In response, each agency must devise a methodology to calculate the benefits that emanate from each applicable covered program.

  • Many organizations and communities are unable to allocate the necessary time and resources to organize and qualify for these benefits.
  • Individually, these verticals lack the necessary skills and experience to establish partnerships with governments and municipalities. They face difficulties in building relationships and navigating through governmental sectors to gain their trust and consent.
  • To elaborate, our role involves facilitating the creation of ecosystems and providing them with access to funding. Subsequently, we offer an option to assist in the management of these organizations.

SOLUTION

Our coalition endeavors to facilitate our partners’ success.

  • The bottom line is that no single entity, regardless of its level of dedication, expertise, or capacity, can independently leverage federal funding.
  • While local governments may possess election certificates, they often grapple with staff turnover and the relentless pace of local elections, which proceed despite federal spending deadlines.
  • Additionally, nonprofits frequently serve as the municipal public policy arm’s execution component.
  • Ultimately, a well-coordinated team is essential in navigating these complex funding procedures.
 

Areas for coalition to consider:

  • Increased technical assistance and community engagement of disadvantaged communities
  • Increased flood mitigation benefits
  • Floodplain restoration
  • Hectares of wetlands restoration
  • Green stormwater infrastructure
  • Urban flood risk mapping
