Division of Compliance Assistance holds grant workshops to help with environmental and community development grants

Have you been tasked with writing grants, but don’t know where to start? Have you written grants before but were not successful?

Join us for our one-day grant writing workshop, which will provide participants with a solid understanding of grant writing and tips and tricks that will help make proposals more attractive to funders. This workshop will highlight community development and

environmental grants. However, the information covered will be applicable to many other types of grants from federal government and foundation funders.  The last portion of the workshop will highlight the upcoming U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Brownfield Grants that can help communities redevelop properties with environmental issues. Check out the draft agenda. You must register to attend.

  • How to identify grants for your organization
