Free Intro to Grant Writing and Community Revitalization Workshop Set for Sept. 29

Join us for our FREE, 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 funding agencies.

This workshop will highlight environmental and community development grants. However, the information covered will be applicable to many other types of grants from federal government and foundation funding agencies. The last portion of the workshop will highlight the upcoming E.P.A. Brownfield Grants.

Each year the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) releases a call for proposals for Brownfield Cleanup, Assessment and Revolving Loan Fund Grants. These grants are available to assist communities to inventory, assess, remediate and rehabilitate environmentally impaired properties.

Brownfields are properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to contamination or the perception of contamination. They can include former dry cleaning establishments, old factories, mine-scarred lands, meth labs and abandoned schools and hospitals, just to name a few. This year, the E.P.A. is planning to release guidance in mid-to-late September with grants being due in November.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to identify grants for your organization
  • The components of a successful grant proposal
  • Performance measurements and logic models
  • Common mistakes
  • Insight into the federal grant review process
  • How to make your proposal stronger
  • How to address brownfield grant questions

 Who should attend?

  • Community development professionals
  • Local governments
  • Nonprofits and community groups
  • Quasi-governmental agencies
