Thursday, January 28th, 2021 | 2:00-3:00 PM ET | Earn 1 CPE credit

With no new state and local government funding in the latest COVID-19 relief package, and revenue shortfalls of over $400 billion over the next three years, it’s more important than ever to execute a strong government grant proposal. A competitive grant proposal means the difference between those who continue to experience revenue decline and those who will improve economic outlook in the long-term. However, with no single template to address the various (and complicated) types of funding opportunities, where do you start?

In this webinar from American City and County and eCivis, attendees will learn:

  • What are the most three important types of grants
  • Do’s and don’ts when it comes to preparing a proposal for government grants
  • 6 steps to assemble a competitive grant proposal
