Learn How to Write a Grant

The process of developing a grant proposal requires a unique skill set, from finding an appropriate request for proposals to developing the project, writing the proposal and evaluating the outcomes.

With the grant process becoming more competitive and funding less available, you’ll need to be creative in researching, program development and networking. This training session will provide a practical and engaging approach to grant writing. In the workshop, participants will bring their own ideas and begin to explore how those ideas would fit into a grant proposal. Sample grants will be provided. Additionally, an occupational therapist who has been through the process of searching, writing and implementing local and federal funding will discuss lessons learned.
