Fee-Based Workshop: Grant Writing Made Easy




Grants Made Easy



Wed, Dec 6th, 2017 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST




Workshop Description
Ten years ago, your organization could apply for a grant fairly easily and have a good chance of receiving the award. Fast forward to today’s economically stressed environment, and you will find it is a much more competitive and difficult to receive an award. Crime has a cost – both in what it costs society, but also in the dollars it takes to combat crime and bring the perpetrators to justice. For many people, though, writing grants can be as about exciting as getting a root canal…. But without the painkillers or Novocain. However, writing grants doesn’t have to be painful or stressful. Not if you have a plan. This 2-hour workshop is designed to help you understand the core processes for writing a successful grant, identify the key team members of the grant writing team, and special considerations for your grant writing process. The workshop reviews the mechanics of finding appropriate grants for your organization and its needs, how to back time the grant writing process so you can ensure you meet all of the requirements commonly stated in such grants, and the best ways to gain support for your grant from key constituents or leaders. It also includes practical resources for the beginning grant writer, such as funding sources, as well as helpful hints for seasoned veterans for addressing some of the most common sections of the grant proposal.
