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.
The recent federal government shutdown has significantly curtailed grant making at about a half-dozen federal agencies. But seasoned grant seekers know that there is still money out there—you just have to know where to look.
Join grant professional Frank Klimko to pick up clues and tips on how to find outside-the-box funding opportunities at the federal level. The trick to winning such grants is to understand the budget cycle and to be nimble and move swiftly (federal grants typically have a smaller application window than private ones). Plus, Klimko will arm you with additional concrete survival strategies, such as building the right partnerships to see you through shortfalls.
After attending, you’ll know how to follow the funding and keep track of upcoming competitions so you can get a head start—and you’ll know the best ways to win them.
This is, without a doubt, a challenging time for grant seekers who depend even partially on federal funding. But it can be a transformative time, too—one that teaches you new skills to unearth alternate federal, state, and even local funding sources.
