ACTC to present grant workshop beginning May 17

Billions of dollars are waiting for organizations who know the ins and outs of applying for federal grants.

Ashland Community and Technical College will present The Grantsmanship Center’s Competing for Federal Grants Workshop May 17 to 21 to help nonprofit organizations, government agencies and schools compete more effectively for federal funding.

“This training could not be more timely,” said Sarah Diamond Burroway, ACTC director of grants and contracts.

“The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) is releasing billions of dollars in new grants in addition to the more than $300 billion in grants that are awarded every year.”

The five-day Grants Workshop begins at 8:30 a.m. Monday, May 17, and ends at 1 p.m. Friday, May 21. It will be held at the ACTC Roberts Drive Campus at 4818 Roberts Drive.

Participants will learn to interpret application guidelines, decide which grants are appropriate for them, assemble a work plan for proposal development, develop effective and well-documented arguments, follow the funder’s guidelines; and respond to the funder’s requirements.

The fee is $1,195. To register, visit www.tgci.com and click on “training.” The workshop is limited to 25 participants on a first-come basis.
