Learn how to write effective grant proposals and navigate the grant process. Both beginners and experienced grant writers learn to develop ideas into winning proposals, identify potential funders and understand the full proposal development, submission and review process.
This workshop is geared toward novice grant writers with an idea or a program in mind that will help their community. Past participants have included staff and volunteers from local governments, nonprofits and educational organizations as well as members of community groups, clubs and concerned citizens who see a need in their communities that they want to help address.
The Hometown Collaboration Initiative (HCI) is a program available to Indiana communities that are committed to building on their existing assets. It is available to cities, towns and counties in Indiana whose total population is 25,000 or less. HCI is a long-term capacity building program that is comprised of three phases: Foundation, Building Block and Pathway.
Objectives of the HCI program include developing a new generation of local leaders who will take an active part in addressing community priorities, building a supportive community environment for small businesses and entrepreneurs and enhancing community design and public spaces by building on the community’s physical and natural resource assets.
