WHDC Hosts 6th Grant Writing Workshop

June 13, 2019

On Friday, June 7, 2019 a packed house of aspiring and seasoned grant writers convened at Our Children’s Foundation to sharpen their skills at West Harlem Development Corporation’s Sixth Annual Grant Writing Workshop. This free all-day session teaches attendees the fundamental building block of a successful grant proposal, the Logic Model.

Dr. Ursula Embola, who has facilitated this annual workshop offered complimentary by WHDC since its inception, guided participants on the necessary elements to write solid grant proposals that help support their organization’s programming and mission. 

Attendees were extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn the essentials of RFP (Request for Proposal) analysis, project design, budget development, grant narrative development and project evaluation. Many left ready to design effective projects and transform those designs into competitive requests for funding.

Many thanks to all who participated and made the experience both informative and lively! Stay tuned to WHDC for more opportunities offered to the West Harlem community for the benefit of all.
