Grant Writer Assistance

The Grant Writer Assistance program is designed to build the capacity of local nonprofits to further support the services they offer to our community. Recent surveys of local nonprofits identified capacity building as a top need for organizations. Many nonprofits lack the time, skills and resources to focus on grant writing. Therefore, many grant opportunities that could improve and enhance health opportunities in our community are not pursued.
