Frank Klimko edits Children & Youth Funding Report, a Washington DC area-based publication which covers Congress, the Education Dept. and the various federal regulatory agencies. It is a national publication that is updated daily on the web site. He also edits Private Grants Alert, which covers the world of private philanthropy. Klimko is a veteran journalist with more than 30 years experience covering federal, state and local government. In California, he worked on a Pulitzer-prize nominated newspaper investigative project. He is an expert on the federal Freedom of Information Act.
A nationally known speech writer/speaker, Klimko co-produces monthly audio-conferences that provide an insiders view to federal regulations, new billion-dollar spending projects and grant making priorities. The audio conferences have helped hundreds of listeners better position themselves for funding, burnish their applications and get a firmer grip on the federal/private money tree.
As the spending blueprints for FY2016 are becoming finalized, the 26 federal grant making agencies are cranking up the solicitation process for next year. This is real money and lots of it for projects that will directly benefit Main Street. There is no time to wait as the federal competitions move rapidly, going from solicitation to deadline in as little as 30 days. Grant seekers can easily be overwhelmed by the process, getting shut out of money their programs easily deserve.
The Health & Human Service Department (HHS) has released a series of budget forecasts for FY2016, some with deadlines that are as early as the beginning of next year. The HHS is the largest grant making agency in the federal government, and consequently awarded nearly $402 billion in grants last year, including about $50 billion from the Admin for Children and Families. With such substantial grants up for grabs, you can't afford to miss out on these important notices!
This webinar with expert speaker Frank Klimko will provide keys to the federal funding door! These grants forecasts will be interpreted by Frank to provide an early warning system on upcoming competitions. Since federal grants have such narrow application windows (usually just 30 days), you have little time to prepare. Frank will give you a better idea of what is in the pipeline, new priorities, deadlines and tentative funding levels. Early preparation now can level the playing field, help you get your ducks in a row and score big in the major competitions.
Frank will also debunk some myths. While many think the short, 30-day application windows and complicated lists of absolute and competitive priorities are written in favor of larger nonprofits equipped with teams of grant writers, nothing could be farther from the truth. Get up to speed on upcoming grant competitions and dispel myths about the federal grant making process in this webinar.
