Federal Funding Symposium Planned

RICHLAND, Wash.- Washington Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray are sponsoring an annual federal funding symposium.

The event is in the federal building auditorium in Richland.

Representatives will be there to give groups an overview of federal funding and find out how they can get through the process.

"Not only is it hard to find the funding that they want, but it's also hard to know exactly how to navigate their way through that," said Kristin Eby, a representative with Senator Cantwell's office.

"We are kind of giving them a step by step process on how to make their application a little bit stronger."

The symposium is designed for non-profits and small, local governments looking for funding.

It'll take place at the federal building from 10:00 to Noon Thursday morning.

Please RSVP at (206) 553-5545.
