On Thursday, February 25, Conlon Public Strategies Executive Vice President Linda Diamond Shapiro and Senior Advisor Catherine Voigt will be leading a workshop entitled, “Government Grants: Make Your Grant the Top Scoring Proposal.” They will offer practical tips for navigating the federal grant writing process. This will not only include best practices for writing a proposal that will maximize points from reviewers, but also critical information about factors outside the grant writing process that can make the difference between winning an award or being declined. From understanding the politics of federal funding to deciphering budget requirements, the grant team from Conlon Public Strategies will help participants position their organizations for success. This online workshop, which is being hosted by the Volunteer Center of McHenry County and Northern Illinois University, will take place from 9-11:30 am. To register, go to this link.
