Regardless of how the upcoming Presidential and Congressional elections turn out, nonprofits focusing on social welfare programs face significant new challenges in 2013. This is especially true when it comes to programs addressing substance abuse.
Changes at virtually every federal agency – including the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration – have seriously tightened the government’s discretionary funding purse.
If you’re in the social services arena and offer substance abuse treatment, education, or prevention, you won't want to miss CD Publications’ audio conference – “Substance Abuse Funding in 2013: Getting the Jump on Federal & Private Grant Opportunities”.
Your presenter is expert grants analyst and veteran grantwriter David Kittross, editor of Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor for more than two decades and currently senior editor of Community Health Funding Report. Join him for 75 fact-packed minutes as we guide you through a host of funding opportunities, including those available through SAMHSA and other alternative sources, such as:
- The Department of Defense;
- The Transportation Department;
- The Department of Housing & Urban Development;
- The Department of Education
… Just to name a few.
We’ll update you on block grant funding, and how the government’s priorities are being tweaked to reflect the new reality of tighter budgets. We’ll show you how to “protect your place at the table” in the months ahead as policymakers continue pressing their attack on the federal deficit. We’ll show you how to improve and maintain your competitive edge in the rapidly increasing rivalry for federal substance abuse program dollars.
And we'll help you learn how to access alternative sources of funding, as we share new, “inside information” from our sources in the private funding sector. We’ll point you to those private and corporate funders most likely to underwrite your well-planned projects and underscore the key elements most private funders view as critically important in the application review process.
Valuable Handouts Included
