Grant writing is an art, not a science, which requires solid research and financials, creative thought, and a well-designed program - all succinctly written to adhere to the funder's requirements. To maximize success, grant seekers should begin their planning early by drafting a program to be funded, creating a grant writing team, and filing any necessary paperwork to ensure eligibility for as many grant opportunities as possible. This session will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the basics of grant writing.
This webinar will provide examples of actual grants and lead participants through the process of deciding whether to apply. It will address research requirements, writing the problem statement, corresponding goals and objectives, and drafting the grant narrative - including the work plan and evaluation.
The final session in this series will include a comprehensive approach to building a budget based on your grant program, including writing the budget narrative and the use of matching or in-kind funds. The dynamic process of grant administration, including grantor requests for final resubmitted work plan and budgets will be addressed. Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, how to manage grant income, audit requirements, program integrity policies, and program modifications will also be covered.
