Short Story

  • Sign up for alerts. Being on top of the timelines is very important!
  • Read everything. If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time to apply.
  • Engage in webinars and ask questions. Learn more and build relationships.
  • Be careful! Federal grants are reliable until they aren’t.
