Free Community Grant Writing workshop

A free grant-writing workshop funded by Australian Government National Landcare Programme and coordinated by Condamine Catchment Management Association is taking place tomorrow Wednesday (26 October) at Clifton.

Mary-Lou Gittins.

The workshop is tailored to rural communities hoping to develop projects for community outcomes.

Samantha Morris, the workshop presenter said rural communities had nothing to fear about the grant writing process.

“I know from more than 30 years of grant writing that the number one reason people don’t get grants is that they simply don’t apply,” Sam said.

“This four-hour workshop will be light-hearted, interactive and full of useful tips for people who are hoping to access government grants.”

“We look at the types of grants that are available, where to go for grant information, and most importantly, how to develop a project and submit a proposal that will impress assessment panels.”

“Grant writing does not have to be complicated and people who come to this workshop will walk out with heaps of ideas and resources to simplify the process.’

Mary-Lou Gittins, CCMA’s free said the workshop was free for all community groups or individuals.

“We hear time and time again that a major barrier to groups’ functioning is knowing where to access grants to get the work done, which is why we’re coordinating this workshop.”

“We’re really excited to meet community groups and individual who come along and to hear more about the projects they have in mind and how our Catchment Association might be able to support their work.”

Attendance at the workshop, which takes place at Clifton Anglican Church Hall 72 East Street is free. Morning tea and lunch is provided so please book in now. You can register or get more information at: 0429 642 092 or
