Help includes workshops, drop-in office hours and one-on-ones 

Our helpful and friendly RISCA staff can assist you with your grant application needs. We are offering grant writing and budgeting workshops, drop-in hours, and more during February and March so you can meet our April 1 deadline. In addition, we are available to  meet with you about your grant ideas.

During our workshops, we offer an overview of our major grant programs, and you’ll have time to ask questions and meet with program staff.
