The Maryland Governor’s Grants Office is co-hosting with eCivis to bring a nationally renowned grants expert to Maryland on Wednesday, June 24th. This one-day workshop will be led by Dr. Beverly Browning (“Dr. Bev”), who is a noted authority in helping local governments and non-profits win millions in grants.
Dr. Bev will lead you through a day filled with award-winning grant writing techniques, keyword research strategies, tips on building relationships with private-sector funders, and methods for capturing federal competitive grants.
Five Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits will be awarded for attending.
- Recognizing red flags in Notices of Funding Availability (NOFAs) – so you know which competitive grants to pursue and which your community will likely not win.
- Understanding how funding decisions are made – what’s not in print that can help your community win more highly competitive grants.
- Translating your community’s grant-related needs into a compelling storytelling format – traditional writing approaches won’t win grant awards in 2015.
- Developing an evidence-based project design – the one area where most grant applicants fail to receive 100% of the peer review points.
