Statewide Planning Grant National Conference

Crystal Gateway Marriott

Join fellow recipients of EDA’s $1 million Statewide Planning Grants at this national planning grant summit. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet other grant administrators and share best practices from their projects.

The agenda includes insightful presentations and discussions where grantees can share valuable lessons learned in the grant administration journey. This is not just an opportunity to meet other grantees, but also a platform to provide crucial feedback and learn tips to improve grant applications and management.

This event follows the 2024 NADO & DDAA Washington Conference. The room block at the Crystal Gateway Marriott has been extended to accommodate this event.
