Getting Federal Grants

About this event

Michael Wells, CFRE, Grants Northwest

Is your organization ready to enter a new realm of grant seeking? Federal grants typically require longer, more detailed proposals and have much shorter deadlines than foundation and corporate grants. Plus, federal grant-speak is a unique language, and many federal opportunities focus on your response to pre-defined goals and methods. Find out how to read between the lines and evaluate your chances of success in seeking federal dollars. Information on how to identify and respond to this year’s federal stimulus programs (ARRA) will be presented.

If you have some grants experience and are considering seeking federal funding, this workshop is for you! Join Michael Wells, one of Oregon’s most successful federal grants consultants, and learn how to find the federal programs that match your mission. Understand how the federal granting process works, learn how to navigate the confusing application process, and develop strategies for preparing high-scoring proposals.

This two-part webinar will cover everything you need to know to enter the federal grants world.

  1. December 8, 2010 The first session will introduce the federal funding process, types of grants, how to research grant opportunities using grants.gov, and how to read an RFP.
  2. December 15, 2010 The second session will focus on the actual application. Building on the first, it will walk you through using the RFP to organize your proposal, understanding the various forms, budgeting for federal grants, writing to gain the most review points, and online applications.
