Aligning with Federal Stimulus Programs | Discussion
From Esri Events
There is a lot of discussion on the various federal funding opportunities (CARES, ARPA, IIJA) and while the opportunities are exciting, oftentimes with the release of these programs comes a lot of misinformation. Do I have to pay the funds back? Is this program eligible? Am I going to get audited? What are the funding requirements? In other words, is taking the money worth the red tape? Stephen Goldsmith, Director of the Innovations in American Government Program at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government sits down with Teryn Zmuda, Chief Economist and Chief Research Officer from National Association of Counties (NACo) at the 2022 Esri Public Sector CIO Summit to understand from a public policy and legislative analyst perspective how state and local governments can take advantage of this funding opportunity and help dispel any misinformation.
