League members are invited to participate in a one-day Grants Workshop on August 3, 2011 in East Lansing from 9:30am to 4:00pm. The workshop will be held at the Hannah Center First Floor Banquet Room, 819 Abbot Road. It will provide an excellent opportunity for community leaders and staff to learn more about federal resources available to them to assess, cleanup and redevelop brownfields. The workshop also will provide an opportunity to receive advice from experienced grant writers on how to improve your community's grant proposals. The workshop will be a combination of presentation, interactive discussion, and individual grant writing feedback sessions. Specifically, participants will learn about the following: Grant Writing Tips, Different EPA Brownfields Grant Types, Eligibility Requirements, Grant Application Process, Threshold and Ranking Criteria and Other Federal Grant Funding Opportunities.
Please note that time will be available during the afternoon of August 3 for one-on-one interactions with experienced grant writers. If you are interested in taking advantage of this tremendous opportunity, please indicate your interest on the registration form.
