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 competition for federal and private funding increases, it's critical that every grant writer knows the keys to writing the best possible proposals. But, what does it really take to submit winning applications? What do successful applicants generally do —and what are they sure to avoid?
You can’t drive a car without getting the keys to the ignition first and this webinar by expert speaker Frank Klimko will provide the grant seekers with the keys to winning the federal grant. The grant solicitation or application package holds a wealth of knowledge and, often, hidden tips to improve funding chances. This session will provide you with insights on where to look for these tips and how to truly understand what the agencies want to fund.
Dive deep into Notice of Funding Availability (NOFAs), know what they mean, and learn how to find the important information you need. Frank will use winning grant applications for popular programs at the Education Dept. and the Health & Human Services Dept. and their current grant guidance as starting points in this webinar.
Additionally, Frank will use the reviewer’s comments to show how you can figure out what the agencies really want when they are giving out millions of dollars of grants every year. He will focus on common areas of application and guidance, which can apply to a broad range of federal grants. He will also provide tips to ease the grant preparation and submission process.
