Grant-Writing Seminars Aim to Help Health Care Organizations

September 3, 2010

The Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health (PORH) will be hosting four upcoming training sessions—one in each geographic region of the state—on grant-writing basics for organizations in the health care industry. Health care providers and community-based organizations are invited to attend one of the six-hour sessions to learn more about how to write an effective grant proposal.

An experienced grant writer with a strong history of securing grant funds will lead each session. The discussions will cover how to use the Internet to identify and evaluate funding options, develop a budget, and write a grant application. Feedback on specific grant applications also will be available.
