Participants will learn the various aspects of the grant writing process, including how to write a compelling statement of need, and what funders are looking for in grant proposals. Various samples and handouts will also be provided. Instructor Jeani Navarro has over 30 years of grant writing experience and has helped various community organizations secure needed funding.

Private and non-government employers/businesses may qualify for a 50% tuition waiver through the State’s Employment & Training Fund (ETF). For details, visit and apply at least 10 business days before the start of class.
