In this two-day workshop, an experienced grant writer will show you how to research and write winning proposals that get funded. You will become proficient in the proposal format use by the vast majority of public foundations and government agencies. Learn what to do and what not to do on your cover sheet, narrative, background page, and your stakeholder and third-party evaluation plan. Discover the quickest and most efficient ways to gather the information you will need to develop your proposal’s attachments, including information on your organization’s structure, administration, and finances. Gain a full understanding of the criteria funders use to determine whether your grant proposal gets funded or rejected. Before this course is over, you will have discovered a number of significant finishing touches that can give your project the edge over others. You will learn about the importance of obtaining community and political support before submitting a proposal to any government agency. This workshop is led by Addie Stover, a prolific grant writer and manager having garnered more than $150 million in total funding. She has provided program and project management for CDBG and HOME programs, as well as other community development programs.
