This track is for participants seeking additional funding for their organization. This course will teach participants about the major components of a grant proposal, and participants will learn about grant writing for private foundations as well as securing public funding from state and federal sources. Participants will learn about all phases of the grant writing process, including the background preparation needed before beginning the grant writing process, how to identify and evaluate the most appropriate funding sources, how to write and proof read the proposal efficiently, how to submit the proposal, and how to follow up on the decision of the grant making organization. Additionally, participants will review a grant development plan and complete a grant proposal template. This course will incorporate multiple learning styles including activities such as case studies, small group exercises, PowerPoint slides, and written materials. The trainer will guide the learning activities and provide a background lecture for new concepts and methods.

1) Assess their organization's grant readiness
