Have you ever been writing a grant and thought---

 "I wish this grantmaker would just tell me exactly what they want!"

Attend this panel and ask questions to FOUR of the our top funders. 

This workshop will host a panel of funders who will outline the details of grant opportunities and discuss common problems, including developing projects, accurate budgeting, defining and reporting performance measures, maintaining documentation, creating reimbursement requests, and avoiding mission drift. In addition, HUD required strategies will be discussed. This is also an excellent opportunity for grantees who are already receiving funding to ask questions on compliance, get feedback and learn more ways to improve!

This workshop is free to attend, but registration is required.  


  • Learn about available funding opportunities in McHenry County directly from the funders.
  • Get tips and feedback on submitting the best grant application possible.
  • Learn how to avoid common errors and mistakes in grant proposals and compliance that could cost your organization money.
