Event Description

Proposed Funding Cuts by the Trump Administration and How to Focus on Private Giving to Sustain Your Funding Stream.

Reality television personality Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States, but very little of the marathon presidential campaign was devoted to key domestic policy issues like capital funding and K-12 education.

So what does this mean for a grant seeking capital funding in 2017? The President-elect has said that he may cut or divert funding at the Department of Education. At stake is about $100 million in discretionary funding that the DoE distributes each year in a variety of grants competitions. No one knows what the new administration will do next year. But smart grant seekers won’t wait and will begin preparing for a diminished or altered federal funding stream right now.

In order to secure these capital funds, grant seekers must know what to include in their applications while reaching out, where to look for it, and what to say when reaching out to decision-makers. Did you know that the Health and Human Services Department's (HHS') Youth Homeless grants have a special fund set aside for capital projects? The grants have a broad eligibility; however, it must be used to address the needs of homeless, disconnected or street youth. And, the funding can be leveraged with other community support to help with major, blockbuster projects. This webinar will help you get started on the right track in your grant seeking quest in 2017.

In this session, expert speaker Frank Klimko will provide insights into private giving, which will not be affected by the changes in the White House. Frank will also look at parts of the federal funding stream unlikely to be impacted by new priorities from the Trump administration.

The webinar will help you to keep up with the fast-changing capital funding environment, make sure you don’t lose your seat at the funding table and get the money you require. Frank will help you find the government dollars you require and shake the money tree. He will also reveal hidden details and bust myths to educate you (grant seekers) on how best obtain funding for capital or building projects. Additionally, we’ll have a special section on how to furnish the grants application to really get at the front of the line. Plus, you’ll get insider tips, application tricks and proven strategies  to help you with your application.
