With the 2% hard cap, recent budget cuts, and reductions in state funding, many communities are fraught with making difficult decisions when it comes to maintaining their services.  Are you having to make the hard choice not to replace the fire truck or repair Main Street? Do not despair. There are other avenues in which a municipality can still provide these and other services that they need without sacrificing essential services. One of these avenues is grant funding.

If you want to learn the practical ways to win, and not just write grants for your community, this seminar is for you. This hands-on program will teach you the four phases of the grant process using real examples from award winning grants. This workshop will also help you understand the broader concept of grants as well as the concrete step-by-step process to construct a high quality grant application, such as:

  • Viewing grants from the perspective of the funders and utilize that knowledge to determine your organization’s best opportunities
  • Working with stakeholders to properly plan and develop a grant project concept
  • Taking the mystery out of grant writing by following straight-forward, step-by-step instructions that have the greatest impact on the grant readers
  • And how to use strategies for monitoring your grant submission as well as understanding next steps if you are awarded the grant.
