Grant Writing Workshops for Organizations

Effective grant writing is essential to organizational growth. In this 8-hour workshop, your team will gain a deeper understanding of the different components of the grant application process for Community Health Worker programs. By the end of the workshop, your team will have developed draft language that can be taken directly back to your organization and used to prepare winning grant applications for your CHW programs. Our expert grant writers lead this interactive workshop, which can be delivered virtually or on-site.


We’ve taken our experience on effective grant development strategies and have developed a practical and relevant workshop to support your grant development team and increase your organizational capacity to pursue grant opportunities for CHW programs. During this interactive workshop, our experts will guide your employees through the different components of the grant application process and give them opportunities to practice crafting the different grant application sections. Additionally, participants will strategize ways to submit winning grant applications at your organization.
