Grants – Finding, Writing, and Managing – Oh My! (Part 1)
Join WeConservePA in welcoming guest speaker Joanne Walker for a two-part workshop series on grant finding, grant writing, and grant management for Environmental Advisory Councils. Learn more about the process of identifying grant opportunities, the application process, and what to do if you are successful in obtaining a grant for your municipality. Participants should plan to attend both parts 1 & 2.
We will cover the specifics of:
- How municipalities typically apply for and manage grants,
- Finding grant opportunities for your EAC and community,
- Writing the application, and
- How to manage a grant once awarded.
Each evening will consist of a presentation and plenty of time for questions!
