Grant-writing workshop available

Thursday, January 27, 2005

The LEAAP Center is conducting a 13-session grant-writing workshop scheduled to start this evening.

The total fee for the workshops is $25, which will cover the cost of materials and snacks. Attendance at all sessions is not required.

The workshop, funded by the CAPE grant, will build, strengthen and polish proposal writing skills for grant writers of all experience levels. Participants will learn to explore simple proposal writing ideas about how to put projects and programs together, create budgets, identify problems, clarify what input and action is necessary and creating a solution. Instructors will work with students through the creation of the proposal narrative, budget and timelines.

Class size is limited, and scholarships are available by calling the LEAAP Center at 446-2536. Make checks for $25 payable to Clay Community Schools.
