Grant writing guidance

Grant-writing workshops available in 100 Mile House and Williams Lake, Aug. 10-11

  • Aug. 7, 2013 8:00 a.m.

Two, free grant-writing workshops are being offered this month in 100 Mile House and Williams Lake.

The workshops are being co-hosted by the Northern Interior Communities Association and the Cariboo Regional District for community groups, organizations and charities in the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

They will focus on how to write successful applications for the BC Community Gaming Grants program.

However, valuable grant-writing basics will be covered, which can be applied to all funding program applications.

In 100 Mile House, the workshop takes place on Aug. 11 at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre, 175 Airport Rd. The general workshop runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by one-on-one sessions 3-5 p.m.

In Williams Lake, the workshop is Aug. 10 in the Council Chambers at 450 Mart St. The workshop takes place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with one-to-one sessions 1:30-5:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, the one-on-one sessions are now fully booked for both locations.
