Baker Tilly CPE Webinars

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1 free CPE credit.


With a wave of funding sources, opportunities and requirements, many state, county and local government leaders are looking for resources to help them prioritize and align spending with their community’s needs.

We will discuss the U.S. Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) funding priorities and ways communities can maximize this unprecedented investment in community economic development projects
