Applying for federal grants can – to put it mildly – be daunting.

She then guides 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.

  • Examine major trends in federal funding and how to find appropriate grant opportunities for your organization as an awardee or as a partner agency
