Overview: Grants awards can be both a blessing and a curse. Grants may allow your organization to launch
Grants awards can be both a blessing and a curse. Grants may allow your organization to launch a program you may not have been able to do within your normal operating budget. However, managing the grant contract may be more work than anticipated. Sharon will walk through the entire grant process from finding a grant application, preparing a competitive grant proposal, and managing a grant contract.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate ability to find funding opportunities.
- Prepare a competitive grant proposal.
- Effectively manage a grant project’s stakeholders, scope, schedule and cost.
