Hands On Grant Writing Workshop Nov 13-14

By October 21, 2014News

Organizations and individuals are invited to attend a two-day Grant Writing Workshop where participants will write a draft grant project proposal and identify potential funding sources.  The workshop will be held Nov. 13-14 at Brian Head.

National Scenic Byway, Utah’s Patchwork Parkway, is hosting the two-day workshop where participants will receive practical hands-on training on how to research and write grants that clearly state the purpose; have clear and measurable goals, objectives and outcomes; and have realistic justifiable budgets.  Training will be given by grant writing professionals.

“The benefit of this workshop is that attendees will bring a project to the workshop from which they will use to write their draft grant proposal as well as identifying potential funding sources,” said Patchwork Parkway Chairman and Brian Head Mayor Dutch Deutschlander.
