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.
There is still no clear direction on where federal funding will go for FY2017, despite continued noise from the Trump administration. The President has said that he may cut or divert about $100 million in discretionary funding that the Department of Education distributes each year in a variety of grants competitions. The release of FY 2017 federal funding solicitations has decreased since Trump’s inauguration, largely because the government is still operating under a stopgap funding bill, which expires at the end of April. Solicitations should start being released at a healthy clip again once the FY 2017 appropriations talks restart. However, it is hard to tell whether deep cuts could be in the offing. Grant seekers should keep in mind that Republicans don’t have a complete control of Congress. Unlike private grants, which have a larger application window, federal grants have a short application period and grant writers must move swiftly to qualify, apply for and win these grants.
Join this session by expert speaker Frank Klimko who will provide the concrete information on the direction of federal funding this year and beyond, and will offer the hidden details.
