Grant writing is a competitive endeavor, and many agencies approach the task poorly prepared. Dean Klinkenberg has been involved in dozens of grant cycles as both an applicant and a reviewer. In this program, he will give an overview of the federal agencies and private foundations that regularly offer funding and describe how to evaluate which grants to apply for. He will then describe the different sections of a grant application and what content should be covered in each section. The program will finish with 17 tips to improve grant writing skills, which will include common mistakes grant writers make and how to avoid them. If you are a social worker, program administrator, program manager, or anyone at an agency who expects to apply for funding to start a new program or expand an existing one or otherwise seek external funding to improve the services you offer, enroll in this program to learn how to make your grant application more competitive.
