Finding Funding: How to Prepare & Write a Grant Application

Identifying funding sources and preparing grant applications is a continuous process and there is no “foolproof” formula. However, this training will provide you with tips, tricks, and pointers to increase your organization’s likelihood of success!

Finding funding may seem overwhelming, so this training begins at the beginning, highlighting where to find funding opportunities, detailing the key components of a funding solicitation, and developing responses to these components in a high-quality grant proposal. In this training, we provide a comprehensive introduction to grant writing and help you avoid the most common grant proposal pitfalls. This introductory training is suitable for an individual or organization seeking to identify avenues for identifying targeted, relevant grants to apply for and crafting proposals to meet the requirements of those grant solicitations. This training is perfect for those with little to no formal grant writing experience.

The team of experts at IJRD who developed the series have brought in over $33 million in funding to support research being conducted in 20 states across the nation. They have designed, implemented, and evaluated dozens of programs in nonprofit organizations, correctional settings, and communities with thousands of research participants. 

At the end of this training, trainees will understand:  

  • The basics of identifying funding opportunities
  • Strategies for effective grant writing
  • How to identify organization/agency requirements
