In this era of declining public funding, public sector managers are challenged to maintain program excellence on smaller budgets. Proposal/Grant writing to public and private sources can help public managers maintain an emphasis upon programmatic excellence while diversifying revenue streams. A source of funding that many public managers often give is inadequate attention to grants from foundations, nonprofit organizations and even other government agencies. In an increasingly competitive environment for philanthropic and government funding, it's necessary to invest in thorough research, excellent program development and strong writing. During this workshop, participants prepare a well-written proposal utilizing key techniques for success and learn common methods to communicate ideas in a clear and concise way.

By the end of this workshop, public managers learn to transform a concept into a program for implementation, research to find an appropriate public or private sector funder and develop a compelling proposal. Workshop activities include proposal development, funder research and cultivation strategies. Participants are required to bring at least one program idea to research.
