The Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing Workshop teaches grant writers of all skill levels how to prepare and submit a professional proposal. The two-day interactive workshop takes place Monday, October 28 and Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 9:00 am to 4:30 pm local time on both days.  The cost of the workshop is $175. Lunch and materials will be provided both days.

The two-day workshop is geared toward those who work or volunteer for nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, community clubs, and local government units and departments. Participants will learn how to develop ideas for winning grant proposals, identify and work with funding sources, and understand the proposal development, submission and review process. Professional review of a draft proposal is also included.

“Participants in previous workshops have received millions of dollars in funding, allowing them to expand community facilities, purchase needed equipment and increase their services,” said Kris Parker, Regional Community Development educator with Purdue Extension.

What participants have to say: “I feel confident in writing a grant now. I was kind of scared before!”—participant from Huntington County
