County Executive Phillips Armstrong and Lehigh County’s Congress of Governments Working to Help Municipalities Optimize Their Grant Writing


(Allentown, Pa)- On March 12th, Lehigh County’s Congress of Governments will convene for their next meeting.  Their topic of discussion will be guiding local municipalities through the process and art of grant writing, in an effort to improve their chances of receiving these critical funds.

The program officially titled: Ready… Set… Go for the Money: Strategies for Grant Application Readiness – Preparing Sellable Projects for the Right Time and Right Funder, will feature a number of local experts.

The grant seminar will feature discussions on funding concerning a number of pertinent local issues.

Attendants will hear about grants from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Community and Economic Development as well as the Commercial-Property Assessed Clean Energy Program which

provides funding for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.

“In an era where municipalities are looking to make every dollar count, grants are a critical factor in completing vital community projects from preserving our open space to expanding the use of renewable energy.  It’s our job as the county to facilitate these discussions, so we can ensure every community is successful in meeting the needs of its people,” said County Executive Phillips Armstrong.

Lehigh County regularly holds Congress of Government meetings which are designed to foster cooperation among the county’s municipalities and provide educational resources to local leaders.
