Free grant-writing workshops set for September

Three grant-writing orientation workshops are scheduled for September; two are sponsored by the Clackamas County Cultural Coalition and the third is offered by the Clackamas County Public Health Division.

The crucial point for the two offered by the cultural coalition is that potential attendees must RSVP for the free workshops by Sept. 5. Visit wpcllc.info to fill out the RSVP form.

The first workshop offered by the cultural coalition takes place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 9. It is for individuals who are considering applying for a Clackamas County Cultural Coalition Grant; the deadline for that grant is Oct. 15.

Starting in 2014 the coalition is now offering a separate application for those interested in applying for a grant that supports individual professional development and/or project grants. The orientation will provide new details about how the review panel will assess individual applications and elements that will strengthen the application.

The second orientation session takes place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 10, and is specifically set up for organizations applying for a project grant.

An overview of the various elements in the grant application will be reviewed including the importance of demonstrating community support, partnerships, in-kind contributions and the types of financial documents you will need to prepare to submit your application. Up to two representatives can attend on behalf of an organization.

The location for both orientations will be the Clackamas County Development Services Building Room, 119, 150 S. Beavercreek Road, Oregon City. For more information, contact the grant administrator at 503-655-0525.

The third grant-writing workshop will be hosted by the Clackamas County Public Health Division; it takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sept. 24 on the Red Soils Campus in the Development Services Building, room 115, 150 S. Beavercreek Road, Oregon City.

This class will cover how to plan and write a grant proposal, as well as where you can find local and regional funding sources. The class will highlight topics that support community health grant proposals.

The class is free to the public, but pre-registration is required.

To register for this class, or for more information, contact Kirsten Ingersoll at 503-742-5954 or by email at kingersoll@co.clackamas.or.us. Or visit clackamas.us/publichealth/heal.html.
