Using Information to Achieve Project Funding Success
Community leaders face multiple realities when it comes to securing financing for priority projects: local revenues are stretched thin and the competition for limited grant dollars and donor funding is growing more fierce every day. When a Main Street program is working to implement a priority project – infrastructure improvements or a building rehabilitation – it must often look beyond the typical sources of funding to get things under way. It may sound cliché – but leaders are wise to plan their work and work their plan. This workshop will walk you through the development of five basic, yet important, documents that can help youdefine a project, identify needs, and gather information on how to find funding success.
- Clearly defining projects and following a reasonable process to identify resources, cultivate partnerships, and secure funding.
- Specific information-based resources to aid in funding research and development
- Templates to use right away to aid in the quest for project funding
