Federal Grant Development: Federal Grant Registrations and Portals



Federal Grant Registrations and Portals
Session 4 of the Federal Grant Development Series

Diverse funding streams are the key to many organizations’ financial sustainability. The complexity and high accountability of federal funding deters many organizations until they are more advanced along the grant readiness continuum. One of the first steps in being prepared to apply for federal funding that matches your organization’s priorities is to understand and be registered in appropriate federal grant portals.

In this webinar, federal grants expert, Julie Assel, GPC, will walk you through the processes that are required for all federal grant opportunities, the portals most commonly used to submit federal grants, and recommended processes for maintaining registrations even if your organization experiences turnover.

Federal Grant Development Training Series

Most people consider federal grant training to be a more advanced form of grant writing and management. We at Assel Grant Services do a lot of work with federal grants and we believe that federal grants share a lot of characteristics with significant federal grants. That said, there are a lot of nuances unique to federal grants to learn. This professional development series is designed to help nonprofit professionals who have never written a federal grant be as prepared to step through the federal grant pre-award and post-award process for the first time with confidence.

These sessions are designed to support nonprofit professionals before and during their first federal grant. If you don’t tune in before your first opportunity comes out, this series can be managed during a typical six to eight-week federal grant funding cycle.

If you would like to arrange a custom scheduled training for your organization, please email us to speak to one of our Training staff. If you would like information about all our upcoming trainings, please subscribe to our monthly Training Newsletter!
