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. In addition, we are available to meet with you about your grant ideas. 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.
A key reminder: Get your questions to staff prior to 6 p.m. on deadline day, April 1; portal closes at 11:59 p.m.
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.
View the video of our FY22 grant workshop.
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 for one of our virtual meetings.
