Federal Grant Writing Workshop

The Basics: Federal Grant Writing

A step-by- step walk-through the path to successful grant development

An Illinois ResourceNet Technical Assistant Provider, Valerie Leonard will guide first-time federal grant-seekers in a detailed explanation of the steps leading to the drafting and submission of competitive federal grants. The 2-hour workshop caters to nonprofit organizations and local units of government looking to access the skills necessary to become an informed grantee aiming to apply for available federal opportunities for the first time.

This session provides participants with essential tips to writing federal grant proposals including how to use the request for proposal announcement as a guide, building an outline, and writing a complete grant. Participants will also learn how to articulate the flow of their program operations through logic models and how to write the evaluation section.

The presentation provides an overview covering topics from pre-grant writing preparation and assessing readiness to submitting a completed grant proposal.

Highlights from the federal funding grant process workshop include:
•    Learning how to target workforce efforts and understand where to find valuable sources of information.
•    Telling your organization's story and developing a brand.
•    Transitioning from a working outline to a ‘live’ submission.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Friday, July 17th at the Great Cities Institute located at 412 S. Peoria Street, Suite 400, Chicago, IL 60607.

Registration for this workshop is limited.

Everyone is eligible to participate. However, the concepts discussed during the session are targeted towards first-time federal grant seekers. Participants are encouraged to complete an organizational profile, which will allow IRN to better assess the strengths and weaknesses of the organizations attending the session.
