Grant Writing 101

A grant writing workshop is scheduled to be presented in Clay County November 30 for representatives of nonprofits, local government and schools.
 
Grant Writing 101 will provide hands-on training in seeking and writing successful grant applications.  The workshop will be presented from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 30 at the Clay County Extension office, 110 W. 4th Street, Spencer. The program is sponsored by Iowa State University Extension – Clay County.
 
Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop, iPad or tablet device to the workshop, if they have one available.
 
This is the second time the Grant Writing 101 program will be presented in Clay County in 2016. Because the class size is limited to 20 participants, the July class filled up quickly and many individuals were left on a waiting list for that session.
The fee for the workshop is $25. To register, call 712-262-2264; the registration deadline is November 28.
 
The training will be presented by Jane Nolan Goeken, a Community and Economic Development program specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Goeken has 28 years of successful grant writing experience, including extensive work with a variety of federal, state, local and foundation grant programs.  She has also served as a grant application reviewer and has helped set up grant award and review programs.
 
Goeken will assist workshop participants in exploring various public and private funding sources, and provide instruction and tips on planning projects and writing successful grant applications.  For more information about the workshop, contact Jane Goeken at jngoeken@iastate.edu or 712-240-2504.
