Writing grants is the easy part. It's getting a project ready to pursue funding that can be so hard. This course will walk you through how to develop an idea into a project ready to secure funding. You will learn how to develop a project budget and scope of work, select a team, establish any partnership agreements, secure site ownership, and more.
