The Center for Rural Health (CRH) conducts grant writing workshops that provide participants who wish to address
rural health issues in their community with the basic tools necessary to compete successfully for grant funds.
The workshop covers methods for searching and applying for private and public grant funding, critical steps for
planning and writing a grant proposal, and the most common components or sections for most grant applications.
Recognizing the diversity of funding opportunities
Researching and identifying potential funders
Thinking through different approaches or models to developing a proposal
Writing the key elements of a grant proposal
Revising proposals and grant applications
Providing helpful hints for successful grant writing
Workshops primarily involve lecture with problem-based learning. All participants receive a packet containing a
hard copy of the PowerPoint presentation and additional background information. Additional information is
provided through the online grant writing toolkit. Interested organizations serve as the local host and are
responsible for local marketing and coordination. Customized workshops are available and may involve four to
eight hour sessions.
Host a Workshop
The CRH will come to your community and present a grant writing workshop upon request. It is required that there
be a minimum of 15 people registered (you may invite people from other communities, organizations, etc.). The
community is responsible for the meeting logistics (providing snacks/lunch, arranging the training location,
inviting participants) and any costs associated with that. The CRH does not charge a fee for presenting these
workshops. Contact Kylie at firstname.lastname@example.org or
(701) 777-5380 with questions or to sign your community up to host a workshop.
