White Paper: Federal Cybersecurity Funding to State and Local Governments

Summary of Roundtable, hosted by ATARC on February 2, 2022

A group of Federal, state, local, academic, and industry stakeholders gathered on February 2nd to discuss the expected distribution of $1 billion of federally approved cybersecurity funding included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021.

Roundtable participants shared their thoughts on the unique challenges faced by the smaller state and local authorities, and how collaboration amongst themselves as well as hands-on federal support and training opportunities could best help them develop successful cybersecurity funding applications. 

ATARC intends to continue this discussion under the umbrella of a soon to be launched State and Local Cyber Grant Program Working Group. Please contact us to learn how you can get involved.
