Learn How To Find the Right Grant and Write a Winning Grant Proposal
Free Workshop Wednesday, June 8, at Fallen Timbers Visitor Center
Potential grantees will have the opportunity to learn grant review from the inside out at Ohio EPA’s Grant Writing 101/102 class to be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 8, 2016, at Fallen Timbers Visitor Center, 4949 Jerome Road, Maumee.
One of the best ways to become a better grant writer is to review others’ proposals. Participants will practice scoring applications using Ohio Environmental Education Fund’s (OEEF) preferred characteristics for projects targeting a pre-school to university audience. Learn about OEEF and the online Grants Management System using the eBusiness Center. Participants will be certified as OEEF volunteer peer reviewers. This will be a six-hour interactive workshop.
Materials and grant writing information are provided free of charge. Lunch is on your own with many options close by. To attend the workshop, register by email before the close of business June 3, 2016: Dennis.Clement@epa.ohio.gov.
Additional workshops are planned for 2016. Dates and locations will be announced and posted at www.epa.ohio.gov/oee. The Ohio Environmental Education Fund offers several different free workshops. Organizations that would be interested in hosting a local workshop may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
OEEF provides approximately $1 million annually in grants for environmental education projects targeting pre-school through university students and teachers, the adult general public and the regulated community.
The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. Since then, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling.
