A well-written grant could be the difference between propelling your project to success and watching it fall flat. For the sake of your organization’s mission and efficiency, investing time to hone the grant-writing craft is well worth it. Using the Common Grant Application form, this course will review the main sections of a grant application: the cover sheet, statement of need, narrative, organization history, supporting data, partnerships and memos of agreement, and proposed budget. Working in small groups, participants will have the opportunity to critique sample proposals and draft their own sample statement of need and narrative sections.
This training takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13th at the Providers’ Council in Framingham.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Identify and explain the basic sections of all grant applications;
- Understand how to use both story-telling and hard data in a grant application; and
- Understand how to develop a budget for a grant application.
