Frank Klimko is a veteran journalist with more than 30 years of experience covering federal, state, and local government regulation; agency news; and private philanthropy. As a webinar instructor, he has helped hundreds of listeners better position themselves for funding, burnish their applications, and get a firmer grip on the federal/private money tree. Klimko specializes in uncovering alternative and hidden grant opportunities.
Despite the uncertainty, there’s a robust amount of funding out there for affordable housing, green building, neighborhood revitalization, and other types of projects. Did you know that while the Housing & Urban Development Department (HUD) is the biggest funder of these types of projects, other agencies also offer funding for projects that have connections to their areas of governance?
