On January 27, 2023, FTA announced the availability of nearly $1.7 billion in Fiscal Year 2023 funding to support state and local efforts to buy or modernize buses, improve bus facilities, and support workforce development.
At GrantMatch, we acknowledge that our headquarters are situated on the Treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as well as the Traditional Territory of the Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, and Anishinabek people. This land is covered by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement. We respectfully recognize that these lands’ original inhabitants and caretakers are First Nation and Métis people, and we are deeply grateful to be able to work on this land. As a remote team with employees across Turtle Island, also called North America, we would like to acknowledge the importance of the land that each of our team members calls home. GrantMatch actively encourages employees to learn about the history of the land on which they are situated and their local Indigenous peoples.
