Course Description:

This practical grant writing course will provide the participant with the fundamental skills needed to develop financial planning strategies for grant funding for the development of policing strate- gies and grant programs for the reduction of drugs and substance abuse, drug-related crime, and violence. The course will provide the tools needed to research, develop, write, and submit suc- cessful grant proposals. The participant will be presented with the concepts of grant development, the components of a grant, how to research and identify funding sources, and how to develop and submit a complete grant proposal. To gain maximum benefit from this course, all participants must come to the course with a project idea or a specific request for proposal. At the completion of the course each participant will have the tools and knowledge to assist the department in the planning, development, and funding of grant-related programs and projects.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  1. Define the components of a basic grant proposal.
  2. Identify the major types of grant funders for drug-related grant funding.
  3. Understand the strategic planning behind successful grant funding.
  4. Demonstrate the ability to read and understand the different types of funding announcements.
  5. Locate funders’ information via the Internet, catalogs, and directories.
  6. Explain how grant writing is a part of an overall fund development strategy for program devel- opment and sustainability.

Students should bring a current project idea for grant funding or a current funding announcement.
Students should bring the fact sheet (completed prior to the course), and any history or current information about their organization they think will be needed.
Each student should have basic computer skills in word processing using Microsoft Office.
This course is designed to meet the needs of a beginner in grant writing through enhancing the skills of a student with experience.
