Grant Writing 101 Workshop | Jan. 17 |9 a.m.-4 p.m. | The Center for Rural Development

Do you want to write a grant or have you written one that was not funded?

Whether it’s to a federal source or a foundation, knowing the steps to formulating a grant application is key to achieving funding.

The Center for Rural Development is hosting Grant Writing 101 workshop that will give grant writers the essential skills they need to write a successful grant proposal from start to finish.

“Grant Writing 101 is targeted for both beginner and advanced-level grant writers,” said Patti Simpson, manager of the Business & Community Training Center at The Center. “This workshop provides the basic tools for beginners to get started writing a grant proposal and more experienced grant writers will have an opportunity to advance their skills and keep up with the current grant-writing trends.”

Instructor Melissa Vermillion, grant writer for Hazard Community and Technical College, has successfully written grant applications to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Endowment for the Arts, Appalachian Regional Commission, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education TRIO programs, and several private funders.

“Grant Writing 101 will provide grant writers with the basic skills to locate grant opportunities and to plan and write compelling grant proposals,” Vermillion said. “We will also look at some of the common pitfalls and fatal flaws made while writing grant proposals.”

The workshop is sponsored by The Center’s Business & Community Training Center as part of its workforce and career training program. Registration is $149 per person.
