Come to Order: Legislation, Public Information and Grant Applications

At the federal and state level grant funds are determined through the legislative process. Grant professionals can use the information contained in legislation to inform their grant calendar. In addition, many sources of public information are available that can be used to enhance grant applications to foundations and government agencies.

In this session grant professionals will learn how to track legislation that impacts their agency or can provide sources of funding for projects or programs at the federal and state level. Attendees will also receive a comprehensive list of resources of public information that can be used in grant applications.

Attendees will be provided with templates to make public information requests, be shown sources of active public information, view how recent legislation was tracked for a project, and leave with ways they can write more effective grant applications.
