The first webinar in our 2014 Grant Development Webinar Series is designed for grant writers and other personnel responsible for identifying federal funding opportunities and preparing federal grant proposals. You will come away from this session with the basic “how-to’s” of federal grant writing, including:
Navigating the grants.gov grant application
Characteristics of successful proposals
Elements of the narrative
Guidelines for composing the most challenging narrative elements (needs statement, goals/objectives, workplan, staffing plan, dissemination/replication, logic model and evaluation)
Budget and budget narrative
Support letters, memoranda of understanding, and third party agreements
Presentation and polishing
Submitting the package
The webinar will provide a general overview of the process of preparing federal grants, with an emphasis on responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (such as ACYF, FYSB, SAMHSA, etc.) and Department of Justice (OJJDP). This webinar will not cover specific federal announcements.
