Free Intro to Grant Writing and Community Revitalization Workshop

Join us for our FREE, one-day grant writing workshop, which will provide participants with a solid understanding of grant writing 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 EPA Brownfield Grant application, BUILD Act information and any changes in guidelines.
