Workshop Description

This 6-hour training will provide insights to Writing Successful Grants. 

Funding is an ongoing challenge for any prevention program, and grant writing is a key strategy to increase your support and sustsain your program into the future.  This workshop covers the do's and don'ts of grant writing, and provides insight into how to find potential grants, how to respond to requests for applications, what to include (and leave out) of your applications, and how to maximize the chances of winning a grant.
