Federal Grants: Pursuing Federal Grants
Session 1 of the Federal Grants Series
Applying for federal grants can – to put it mildly – be daunting. In this training, we make it easier by guiding participants through the major components, the key similarities and differences between foundation and federal grants, and how policy can impact the timelines of federal grant opportunities and deadlines. We then guide you through some of the pitfalls and highlights of writing federal grants, including planning, writing, submission, management, and the hotly debated topics of writing styles and budgets/finances.
What You’ll Learn:
- Examine major trends in federal funding and how to find appropriate grant opportunities for your organization as an awardee

Federal Grants 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.
