Course Description

We are excited to be headed to Napa Valley to deliver our introductory law enforcement grant writing course. This two-day course will prepare you to write winning grant applications for equipment, technology, personnel, Police K9, and more. Unlike other grant writing trainings, this course is specifically designed for law enforcement and the grants that they will go after. This course emphasizes a systematic approach to grant preparation, including the collection and organization of agency data, proactive grant opportunity identification, grant announcement dissection, and structured writing. High quality state and federal grant application examples are presented in this course. A preview of the course materials including a schedule with a topical outline is provided below. Can’t make it to Calistoga? Register for the live virtual version of this course and take it from anywhere.

Course Workbook with Topical Outline

This course is highly interactive and includes the completion of several custom-made workbook exercises. Feel free to browse the free preview of our workbook, including the table of contents and course agenda. Note that the exercises have been removed from this preview.

Grant Writing Toolkit

Attendees are also provided with a proprietary grant writing toolkit to warehouse materials pertinent to the grant writing process. This preformatted Excel file includes a custom timeline, budgeting tool, and data collection tool that can be used in grant applications. In addition, it is a resource to store all agency data relevant to grant writing and forthcoming grant opportunities. It also supplements several of the course workbook exercises.
