Need help writing your grant for the April 1st deadline? There are number of ways the friendly RISCA staff can help you with your grant application through Grantwriting and Budget Workshops, Drop-in Hours, and more. Look here for a listing of our available grants.
Grantwriting and Budget Workshops
If you’re new to submitting a grant application to RISCA, or just want a refresher on the “good and less good” of grant writing, join us at one of our grantwriting workshops happening around the state in February or March. This series of grantwriting workshops will have a special focus on best practices in writing budgets for grant applications.
You’ll also be able to meet and talk to some of the RISCA staff about your grant application ideas. We’ll give an overview of our major grant programs, then you’ll have time to ask questions and meet with program staff.
