Council members are invited to join informal roundtable discussions with several federal agencies to learn more about their implementation of the American Rescue Plan and other priorities, including the cross-government equity action plans. This Member Week event is a special chance to engage in conversation with the Council’s Federal Philanthropy Liaisons about federal program resources available to communities and/or target populations and how to connect with these resources. After a brief overview, attendees are invited to join breakout rooms hosted by each agency to discuss the priorities and programs with which foundations can leverage their ongoing work.
