More than $5.8 trillion in federal grants were awarded in 2021. While this amount nearly doubled since 2020, the bulk of the funds went to programs that help communities and the people that live in them including health and human services, education, economic development, housing, and veterans.
Is your organization ready to compete for future federal grants opportunities? Erase the complexity and confusion often associated with federal grants. Rather than relying on corporate or foundation giving, it may be time to seek out potential federal grants.
The objectives of this session include the following:
- Learn to carefully review federal notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) announcements/guidance or request for proposals (RFPs)
- Understanding what the government wants to fund and how to read between the lines
- Understand the process of preparing lengthy, single-spaced proposal narratives in less than 15 business days
- Learn how peer reviewers score your proposal
This webinar provides learning opportunities for intermediate to advanced (10+ years) grant seekers that, at a minimum, must have attempted to secure government funding. They will have an understanding of how to develop a strong needs statement, goals and outcomes, evaluation strategies, and the budget and justification for the project/program they propose.
This workshop is part of the Level Up series of 29 workshops and webinars offered through the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission supported by a CARES Act grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
