With the enactment of the FY 2015 omnibus funding bill, grant seekers should expect the release of a steady stream of new funding competitions over the next few months as agencies squeeze this year's grant-making into a shorter solicitation window.
President Obama has signed the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 to fund the 26 grant-making agencies and the rest of the federal government through Sept. 30. The trickle of solicitations released should grow exponentially as agencies catch up to release all their programs over a nine-month period. This is good news. Most competitive grants programs will see about the same level as FY 2014 and the major programs, like the Early Learning grants ($250 million) and the widely popular Investing in Innovation competition ($120 million) will again be offered in FY 2015. But, how does the savvy grant seeker position himself to take advantage of this funding torrent?
Grant seekers need to know where to look for federal funding. Unlike private grants, which have a larger application window, federal grants have a very short application period and grant writers must be nimble and move swiftly to qualify, apply and win these grants.
In this webinar, expert speaker Frank Klimko will provide concrete information on the direction of federal funding this year and beyond. Frank will give exclusive details on potential new funding programs. You will learn how to take advantage of the upcoming Investing in Innovation competition and Early Learning grants at the Education Department. You will also learn how to contact federal program officials and not make a pest of yourself.
