This session will offer a national, state, and local perspective on designing and implementing leveraged, non-federal funding, into the WAP. From the Weatherization Leveraged Partnerships project at the National Community Action Partnership, attendees will hear about the national scope of leveraging in the network and some of the strategies that have led to successful partnerships. For local experience on how to secure and implement these non-federal funds in practice, Washington State Department of Commerce and Habitat for Humanity in Lacrosse Wisconsin (in partnership with Couleecap) will walk attendees through current leveraged partnerships and programs in the Washington and Wisconsin networks. Time will be dedicated for attendees to raise questions and share experiences from their state networks throughout the presentation.
