Free but Not Easy: How to Find and Manage Grants

Conference Homepage

Local governments often turn to grant opportunities to help fund new initiatives, provide for new capital projects, or support important initiatives that otherwise would be unaffordable. However, the effort required to find, manage, and report on grants can be significant, especially for a small government. Attendees will learn how to distinguish between types of grants, write a better grant proposal, and learn how to implement and comply with complex grant requirements.
