Understanding and Competing for Federal Grants

The U.S. government awards several trillion dollars in grants to qualified nonprofits and institutions of higher education annually. The odds of winning a federal grant for a specific competition is 1:100. Is your organization ready to compete for future federal grant opportunities?

Erase the complexity and confusion often associated with federal grants. Rather than relying on corporate or foundation giving, it may be time to seek out potential federal grants.

The training objectives of this workshop/webinar are to:
  • Demystify the process of seeking federal grants for single awards of $50,000 to multi-year requests of $1 million or more
  • Learn to carefully review notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) announcements/requests for proposals (RFP) to understand what the government wants to fund
  • Plan for future publication of available federal grants through online resources
  • Understand the process of preparing an average 40-page, single-spaced proposal narrative in less than 15 business days
  • Learn how peer reviewers score proposals
This webinar provides learning opportunities for intermediate to advanced grant seekers who, at a minimum, have attempted to secure government funding.
