Central Council to host five-day grant writing workshop
JUNEAU - Central Council Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska will be hosting the Grantsmanship Training Program July 7-11 at the Vocational Training and Resource Center.

The workshop is to help tribal citizens, members of the community and nonprofit groups learn the intricacies of the grant writing process.

The five-day workshop will be conducted by the Grantsmanship Center, the world's oldest and largest training organization for the nonprofit sector.

"With tight state and federal funding, we must acquire the skills to compete for limited resources," says Marianne Jacobs administrative assistant for Business and Economic Development.

The workshop covers all aspects of searching for grants, writing grant proposals, and negotiating with funding sources.

To ensure personal attention, registration is limited to 30 participants. The program fee of $895 includes workshop tuition and one year of the Grantsmanship Center Membership benefits and services. Half-tuition scholarships may be available for organizations with annual operating budgets under $300,000.

To register for the workshop, or to apply for a scholarship, contact The Grantsmanship Center, at (800) 421-9512 (outside California) or (213) 482-9860.
