Increase Grant Application Success

Enhance your organization's grant writing process.

Book This Workshop

Your organization is not implementing key initiatives or projects due to a lack of funding:

  • The services and programs your organization provides cannot be started, enhanced, or continued due to a lack of funds.
  • Grant applications are not submitted because the various departments and divisions of the organization are unable to identify funding opportunities that align with organizational priorities.
  • Those who are tasked with writing grant applications do so in an ad hoc manner and in conjunction with the duties and responsibilities of their regular job(s). As a result, grant writing is not given the priority it needs.

By using Info-Tech's grant writing blueprint, tools, and templates, your organization will be able to increase its chances of obtaining grant funds:

  • Your working group will collaborate closely to identify and prioritize grant funding opportunities that align with your organization's priorities.
  • Those tasked with writing grant applications will follow best practices, including actively obtaining feedback to enhance the quality of the applications.
  • Even if a grant application is unsuccessful, the organization will solicit feedback on how to enhance and improve future grant applications.
