TCTAC May 2024 Update


Purdue University Extension Community Development is leading a series of workshops through the Great Lakes Environmental Justice Technical Assistance Center in Indiana. This effort supports organizations and local governments in navigating federal funding opportunities to access resources for projects on topics such as enhancing community quality of life, clean energy, pollution cleanup, and green workforce development, among others.
