Introduction to Grant Writing
A three-day intensive workshop to build
grant writing skills for organizations and
agencies in the Sierra Nevada region.


The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) looks to the organizations, agencies, and
local governments in the Region to help achieve its vision for the future: “the magnificent
Sierra Nevada Region enjoys outstanding environmental, economic, and social health,
with vibrant communities and landscapes sustained for future generations.” You are our
partners and we want to help you obtain funding to achieve these goals!
Who should attend? Community, nonprofit, and local government representatives who
would like to learn how to prepare effective grant applications. This workshop is geared to
the beginning and intermediate levels. Participants must be located in (or working in)
the Sierra Nevada Conservancy Region.


What will be covered?

The workshop will cover the basics of grant writing and program
development, including:
 How to make your application as competitive as possible
 Basic program development for effective grant writing
 The eight standard parts of a grant application
 How to create a work plan and budget spreadsheet
This will be a small, interactive class. Participation and writing will be required.
