Grant Writing and Request for Proposals: Locating Sources and Writing Successful Proposals

External funding is critical to the development and implementation of new programs and services for many organizations.  To attract and maintain the interest of funding sources, proposals must demonstrate organizational credibility, logical planning and clear and convincing narratives.

In this workshop, we will explore how to research and identify potential private and public funding sources and develop the tools and knowledge to plan and write successful grant proposals.  The workshop will provide hands-on experience in crafting the essential sections of a successful proposal, including a needs statement, goals and objectives, project organization and implementation, outcomes, personnel, budget and evaluation plan. 

Who Should Attend


 This training is designed for all planners and managers responsible for finding funding for their agency as well as members of an organization who create Grant Applications and Requests for Proposals.  One Stop Operators, One Stop Partners, and service providers will all benefit from this training
