Representatives of nonprofits, local government, schools, and other organizations are encouraged to register for the Grant Writing 201 workshop presented by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach on Friday March 3, from noon 4 p.m. at the Washington County Extension office located at 2223 250th St., Washington, IA 52353. This opportunity is sponsored by the Washington County Extension office and Washington Economic Development Group (WEDG).
Grant Writing 201 is designed for grant writers who want to upgrade and polish their skills, ideally individuals with prior grant writing experience or who have participated in Grant Writing 101. Individuals with grant writing experience who have not previously participated in Grant Writing 101 are asked to email course instructor Mary Weinand at email@example.com prior to registering to describe their prior grant writing experience and ensure the course is right for them.
Workshop topics will include documenting need, methodology, logic models, evaluation, and budgets, with participants encouraged to work on sections of their own grant application during the workshop as those sections are discussed. Participants are expected to bring a grant announcement, request for proposal, or information for the grant program of interest to the workshop. They should also bring a laptop or tablet device.
The fee to register for the workshop is $20 and registration is required by February 28th and a light lunch is provided. To register, visit https://go.iastate.edu/GKLSVY. Grant Writing 201 will be presented by ISU Extension and Outreach Community Development Specialist Lindsay Henderson and Mary Weinand. Henderson and Weinand have extensive experience writing and reviewing grant applications and working with various federal, state, local and private foundation grant programs.
