They were able to use an ARC grant to cover the engineering costs associated with the projects.
Letters of Interest are due by Feb. 2nd, 2018 (this Friday!), so if you know of anyone who might be interested in pursuing a grant from the program, we would need to talk with them ASAP in order to collect the information necessary. The letter of interest is simply contact information for the community, a description of the project and a rough cost estimate, which we could develop at no cost. We could then prepare the ARC application as well.
Click on the “2018 TAP Program Guidance” link to read about how the program works or on the “Tap Awards” links to see which projects received grants in previous years.
Thanks and don’t hesitate to pass this information along or give me a call if you have any questions.
