In 2015, almost $500 billion dollars of grant money was awarded to various agencies and organizations through the various departments of the Federal Government . That doesn’t include grants from foundations or other organizations.

Crime has a cost – both in what it costs society, but also in the dollars it takes to combat crime and bring the perpetrators to justice. One of the key areas law enforcement agencies and other justice-related organizations often seek funding for, is for the equipment and resources to identify, track, and build cases around gun-related crime.

For many people, though, writing grants can be as about exciting as getting a root canal…. But without the pain killers or Novocain.

However, writing grants doesn’t have to be painful or stressful. Not if you have a plan.

During this free, sponsored workshop, brought to the JCH community by Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology, you will learn:
• The mechanics of finding appropriate grants for your organization and its needs,
• Backtiming the grant writing process so you can ensure you meet all of the requirements commonly stated in such grants,
• The best ways to gain support for your grant from key constituents or leaders.

With an eye toward real, upcoming grants – such as Project Safe Neighborhoods (due in March) and the Technology Innovation for Public Safety (TIPS) – this workshop is designed to help you understand the core processes for writing a successful grant, identify the key team members of the grant writing team, and special considerations for your grant writing process.

It also includes practical resources for the beginning grant writer, such as funding sources, as well as helpful hints for seasoned veterans for addressing some of the most common sections of the grant proposal.
