Forum on U.S. Federal Funding Opportunities
Presented by the ICC Government Relations Team

Tuesday, September 13, 8 – 11 am
Louisville Convention Center | Room M101/102

The federal government is making available to code officials and building safety professionals an unprecedented amount of resources – hundreds of millions of dollars – in grants, technical assistance and additional support to encourage the adoption and effective implementation of safe, resilient, and sustainable building codes. The ICC Government Relations Team has been working hard to line up these resources and to connect Code Council members with these opportunities.

Join us to hear from FEMA, HUD, and DOE on the resources their organizations are making available and from the City of Chicago on how it successfully navigated FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP).

Presentations will be followed by breakout sessions with FEMA, HUD, and DOE.
