Training: Grant Research & Writing 101

Dates & Location







As we face high inflation and a looming recession, public safety departments may be facing shrinking budgets. It is imperative to seek alternative funding measures, such as grants.

GSPCC wants to help your agency access as much external funding as possible. This is why we created this grant writing class.

You will learn how to research for a wide array of grant opportunities, how to properly write various types of grants, to include accessing statistical data within your agency, and lastly, what to expect post grant acceptance.

This class is taught by Frank E. Jones, a grant writing veteran that has brought in millions of dollars throughout his career for various agencies. Don’t miss out on your share of grant funding.
